LADYFEST _2011 (English)

LADYFEST_ROMA_011
16-17-18 September
csa La Torre (autonomous social centre) 

Two years after the first ever Ladyfest_Roma, the roman network gladly
presents the second edition of the festival, which will take place from
the 16th until the 18th of September at csa La Torre.

The Network

The network intertwines many and diversified projects, wishes,
abilities, interests, activism practices, and is driven by the common
desire of experiencing a public space that’s ‘fit for all ladies’. The
ambition is to change the current state of things by changing the way we
relate to each other and by producing radical contents, without ever
having to renounce the pleasure of partying together. During the past
two years we have organised and contributed to events and activities in
a variety of contexts – in Rome as much as elsewhere, indoors or in the
streets -, always carrying our essentials with us: a queer-feminist
approach as our work clothes and a craving for DIY in our handbags.

LadyFest_011

LadyFest_011 will revolve around the exploration of imaginaries on body
and sexuality, trying to find out where and how the norm can be broken
and turned upside down: where and how we can move from the pre-packaged
imaginary of power to the subversive and joyful power of free
imagination. We will do this in the form of workshops, performances,
discussion forums, shows, exhibits, gigs, with the participation of
activists from Italy and abroad. A LadyBaby space for children will make
sure moms and dads are fully enabled to participate. For those coming
from out of Rome and for those wishing to have a non-stop festival
experience and multiply the opportunities to socialise, a D.I.Y. camping
site will be created in the green area surrounding the social centre ‘La
Torre’. You will be free to camp from Thursday the 15th till Sunday the
18th.

The Camping Site

The camping site can host a maximum of 100 people. We recommend you book
in advance, to make sure you get the accommodation you need and allow us
to organise things at best. We deeply regret we cannot guarantee a fully
disabled-friendly physical environment. Please note that no dogs will be
allowed in the camping area. In order to facilitate moving around town
during the festival, campers will be provided with as many bicycles as
possible, and with public transport maps.

Application Form

LadyFest_Roma_011 has no sponsors whatsoever. It is entirely
self-managed and self-financed. For this reason, we ask all those who
wish to camp and participate to the LadyFest to make a 25 EUR donation
(covering the costs for a 3-night stay plus entry to all activities). To
