Monday Media Mutiny Event No. 2!

Leave a comment

It’s time for WAM! Vancouver’s second installment of MONDAY MEDIA MUTINY.

Location: The Grind Cafe 4124 Main Street

Time: 7-9 pm

This month, get ready for more creative culture-jamming with DIY bookmarks and postcards that can be discreetly slipped inside magazines and other publications featuring sexist and misogynistic content. Their purpose is to challenge rampant objectification of women and to provoke conscious thought in fellow consumers, particularly in young people, who are especially vulnerable to manipulative messages and imagery in the media.

Postcard/bookmark messages can be critical, inspiring, sarcastic, encouraging, eye-opening, funny, or all of the above and more! Quotes or statistics can be included, or you can just write your thoughts on the subject in your own words.

We will provide all the necessary supplies for making postcards and bookmarks – blank cardstock, black and multicolored permanent markers, scissors, etc. You are welcome to bring your own art supplies in addition if you’d like.

Monday Media Mutiny is a once-monthly feminist event organized by Women, Action, & the Media (WAM!) Vancouver, in which interested folks meet to perform a quick action that fights back against sexist representations of women in the media. At the present time, these events take place on the third Monday of each month at 7pm.
