We are looking for more supporters and volunteers as we press on, and we hope that you will join us. Some ideas we had for daytime activities include a clothing swap, “living room style” feature film viewings, lectures, poetry/fiction/nonfiction slam readings, D.I.Y. zine/t-shirt workshop, art auction, etc. Proceeds will be donated to women’s organizations in the surrounding Portland area.
Tickets at the door are $7 after 7pm each night, or you can purchase a commemorative silicon bracelet for $20 that gets you in all weekend! Pre-sale weekend passes will be available beginning mid-March.
