Yeah, That’s What She Said! (YTWSS) holds their annual pop-up event featuring art, performances, and workshops by working class and poor women, women of color, immigrant women, trans women, and queer women. YTWSS*2017’s theme is MOTHERLAND. What does home mean to you? What does lineage mean to you? What does connection and intimacy with your past, present, and future mean to you?

This weekend-long event at Knockdown Center will include work selected from an open call related to environmental justice, places of origin, family and chosen family, reproductive justice and bodily autonomy, borders, ancestry and lineage, and borders, nationalism, and colonialism.

This is an 18+ event

ABOUT

Yeah, That’s What She Said! is a series of women-lead events that build relationships and experiences through the arts and activism centering working class and poor women, women of color, immigrant women, trans women and queer women. We are collectively self-organized and largely funded by community support. From 2014-2016, we held weekend-long pop-ups that brought together hundreds of women from across New York City.
