ASUW Womxn's Action Commission: THE ______ MONOLOGUES ART FESTIVAL: OPEN CALLS 2019
ASUW Womxn’s Action Commission presents...
as a part of the production previously known the Vagina Monologues, which this year we proudly present as: The Monologues Art Festival! Here you have an explanation of what the festival will look like, as well as information regarding the content of these three days.

This festival will take place at the Intellectual House on April 15th, 16th and 19th, and will also foster artisan vendors.

1) APRIL 15th - 16th: The ____ Monologues Spoken Poetry sessions.

- This production is hoping to center the experiences of womxn, trans*, gender non-conforming and genderqueer folks. Students of all races, classes, sexual orientations, minds, bodies, ages and religions are encouraged to audition. Here is more information about The _____ Monologues,

- More details about the WAC's new "The Monologues Art Festival", what it will entail, and how you can participate:
You may have heard of "The_____ Monologues" before: A beautiful event that holds a series of spoken poetry work by students; This year, we seek to embrace ALL forms of artistic expression, which we believe will expand the boundaries of story-telling and will create a healing space for students and UW community.

- These first two days of the festival will host students who will share with us their spoken poetry work/Monologues (as we have done in the previous years).

2) APRIL 19th : The _____ Monologues Art Festival: "Making Space for Underrepresented Beings in the Arts" Gallery/Show

- If you are a student who paints, sings, dances, does stant-up comedy, is making a movie or perhaps is putting together a photographic collection, and you identify as womxn, trans*, gender non-conforming and genderqueer... we need you! Linked with the series events that will launch this spring as well, "Making space for underrepresented beings in the arts Gallery Show", we want to create a space where people who are usually underrepresented in the art world can express themselves and more importantly promote themselves in a professional setting where artists beyond the UW community can get to know them and create future collaborations with them.

-This will be a space where these individuals can show their multifaceted work (from paintings, to poetry and monologues, to urban designing plans…) and focus on both the process and the finished product of their projects. Even if your work is unfinished we want to highlight the importance of the creative process! We want to encourage artists to break away from a system that often excludes them, and make them feel comfortable, showing their true potential.

- Artists from the greater Seattle Community will come and share their work as well, which we hope to turn into an opportunity for future projects and collaborations.
About the process:

Please fill out this form, and specify what art form you wish to share (spoken poetry, dance, video, etc).

- Different members of our team will take shifts, so the auditions are open all day on March 7th and 8th from 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm. This way you have more time to speak with us and also recommend it to your friends!

**If you are wondering more about what we mean by “monologue”...
Monologues are be written on any topic that you believe should be part of the conversation that the Monologues is intended to spark. Topics encouraged include gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, bodies, minds, activism, relationships, families, and more. Write the truths that need be shared to discuss and deconstruct the identity of a “womxn”.
