International Women’s Day at MOA
Thursday March 5, 2020 | 7 – 9 pm
This year’s International Women’s Day at MOA is a unique intergenerational, intercultural celebration of women supporting women.
Through the voices of women from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds, we explore what it means to be a woman—in this time, in this city, in this world. This special night at MOA features dance, rap, song, poetry, improvisation and powerful words by Vancouver’s emerging and established women artists. The night showcases the diversity, strength, breadth and depth of women’s experiences, their resilience and unique voices through the power of the arts.
International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
Co-curated with dancer, rapper and community organizer, Kayla Vargas; JUNO-winning violinist and community organizer, Meredith Bates and singer/songwriter and musician, Chelsea D.E. Johnson.
