March After-Party 2014: Speaking and Dancing for Choice
September 27, 2014 @ 4:00 pm
Join ARC and our fabulous party cohosts Re(al)Productive Health in FILMBASE after the March for Choice this year for a series of interactive events, music, food, and fun at our afterparty.
From immediately after the March with Tea, Coffee, and Cakes you’ll be able to hang out with other amazing pro-choice people and activists and drop in or participate in the workshop, Speak Out, and the bands and DJs til late.
Packing up Stigma Workshop: Making a Case for Abortion Rights
From 16:30 – 19:00 the Filmbase foyer will be buzzing with a range of activities and materials for you to make your case for abortion rights. You will be assisted by Baggage-Handlers at our interactive workshop which includes a #NotaVessel photo booth, a Customs Declarations desk and a Baggage Drop provided for all who bring wheelie cases to the March for Choice.
Enjoy the lounge space, check out the exhibitions, have some nibbles and keep hanging out or head to this year’s Speak Out:
Speak for Choice: Abortion Speak Out
From 19:00 – 20:45 Speak for Choice will normalise the topic of abortion and celebrate its honest discussion, all within a safe environment that privileges sharing not debate. You can Speak Out here about personal experience of abortion, or of personal experiences in pro-choice activism. The event will provide a safe space to speak out and articulate your experiences and views as we celebrate how individuals have expressed their protest of the 8th Amendment and how networks of support and activism have formed. You are invited to share your personal anecdotes, essays, music, artwork and short films about your abortion and your pro-choice activism on the night. You can submit beforehand here.
Dance and Chat For Choice
From 21:00 on the night will finish with great musical acts, cans, dancing.
We’ll have a wine reception, spectacular nibbles, and cakes and for the rest of the night it will be BYOB, but the tea will be very plentiful (if that’s all the B you need)!
