This past Monday, we participated in Super Heroines Etc.’s Artivism 101 panel discussion with six other women.  The discussion was held at the St. Louis Library Carpenter Branch.  Among us, the panelists were as follows:

Kristian Blackmon, Artist and Organizer with Missouri Jobs with Justice
Emerging Leader Award

Shelly Goebl-Parker, Program Director, Art Therapy Counseling, Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
Alive Magazine

Emma Riley, Digital Storyteller & Communication Designer
Displaced & Erased

Joan Suarez, Bread & Roses Missouri Founder
Missouri History Museum

Andrea Standby, Artistic Director and Co-Founder of PRIME

Elizabeth Vega, Artist and Activist
Cut & Paste

Moderated by Jasmine J. Mahmoud, Postdoctoral Fellow, American Culture Studies, Washington University in St. Louis

The discussion explored navigation of producing activist work, what is artivism to us and how do we consider ourselves and artiviest, and the challenges we face in St. Louis.  There was a Q&A session and the end of the discussion as well.  We intended on documenting the discussion for later viewing but realized we never hit the record button on our device.  Pretty amateur mistake for us in all that we do!

Will keep you posted if Super Heroines Etc., or any other organization will publish a blog about their event.  Please check out all of the amazing women who participated in the panel discussion.
