Description

Launch party!

Strut your stuff and become an honourary member of the Big Kitty Crew (Canada’s largest all-female urban arts collective) and help them launch their new photography exhibit:

Nine Lives: Changing Notions of Femininity Through Time Lives is the first exhibit/event of Roar, Lougheed House's 11-week exploration of Queer History and Gender Identity.

At our March 28 launch party, meet all 12 Big Kitty Crew artists and view their exhibit portraits (all taken in Lougheed House by photographer Katy Whitt) in which they explore what "feminine" means to them, and how expressions of femininity are changing over time.

This launch party event will have performances by dancer Nicole Bruce, a live feminist fashion photobooth, a high-fashion fascinator station, music by DJ MollyFI, performances by jazz vocalist Candice Fudge and Drag Performer Shauna Starr, and more. Cash bar & snacks. Free parking.

Nine Lives' participating artists are: Camille Betts, Sonja Allerdings, Nicole Bruce, Maria Bracko, Molly Fi, Jennie Vallis and Drag Performers Shauna Starr, Makayla Quinn, Slamda Backdoor, Argentina, Felicia Bonée and Krystal Starr.
