We speak with Rachel Carmona, executive director of the Women's March. We discuss the upcoming Women's Convention to be held on August 12-14th at the George R. Brown Convention Center. The Women’s Convention is a weekend of workshops, strategy sessions, inspiring forums, creative expression, and intersectional movement building. It will be a place where cause, community, and creativity intersect. We will provide a space where people can meet, share common interests, and engage on issues of civic engagement, accelerated by pop culture. We will engage activists by melding traditional organizing programming with non-traditional programming, including salons, art spaces, screenings, social programming, and women’s workforce development. This convention will leverage the power of culture shift through skilling up and storytelling to create an empowered space of feminist momentum. This event will mobilize and unite movements for gender justice, racial justice, LGBTQ rights, and environmental justice and bring thousands of participants to combine activism and creative expression among everyday people.
Queer Improv Jam is an LGBTQIA+ improv jam for those who identify as QUEER, TRANS, LESBIAN, GAY, BISEXUAL, GENDERQUEER, and their allies! This jam is 18+ and free of charge. All experience levels are welcome – no improv experience required. Please come as you are, that’s more than enough. The Queer Improv Jam is a relaxed and non-intimidating event.
It is a safe space to explore queer identities and relationships onstage. They want this to be a fun place to meet new people, create, and explore together.
They’ll have a quick introduction to improv followed by some scenes onstage and a discussion at the end of the event.
