a call for women artists

Hey all, spread the word to the places that matter...


The Stellar Femme Fest 2006 is now accepting submissions. The Stellar Femme
Fest is an almost-annual, multi-disciplinary festival celebrating women in
the arts. This year the festival will take place over the course of two
days, at Motel (EPCOR center) and at a community hall (TBA).
Submissions from artists of all disciplines are welcome. Interest in the
objectives of the festival is essential. Projects that show a consideration
for community (such as collaborative or interactive art pieces) will be
given preference.
The festival proceeds will go to support the establishment of a Campus
Women`s Resource Center at the University of Calgary. All artists will be
given the option of donating their pay, in part or in full, to the center.

The Stellar Femme Fest seeks to make involvement in the arts more positive for women by:
- strengthening and broadening the female artistic community
- Celebrating female involvement in the arts
- Increasing exposure to and knowledge of female artists in the community
- Increasing honest respect for female artists, their artwork, and femininity in the arts
