YTWSS*2017 Motherland: Call for Submissions
WHO ARE WE?
"Yeah, That's What She Said! is a series of women-lead events that build relationships and experiences through the arts and activism. YTWSS centers art and workshops by working class and poor women, women of color, immigrant women, trans women and queer women. We are collectively self-organized and largely funded by community support. From 2014-2016, we held weekend-long pop-ups that brought together hundreds of women from across New York City.
WHAT KIND OF WORK AND ARTISTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
We are looking for visual artists, film-makers, performers, musicians, poets and workshop facilitators. We encourage self-referential, self-representational and confessional artwork. We will provide a small fee as compensation for all artists. performers, and workshop facilitators.
WHAT IS THIS YEAR'S THEME?
YTWSS*2017's theme is MOTHERLAND.

What does home mean to you? What does lineage mean to you? What does connection and intimacy with your past, present, and future mean to you?

We are looking for art from women of color, working class and poor women, immigrant women, and trans and queer women that addresses this complicated and pertinent theme, as we defend, seek, and explore our own motherlands. This may include work related to environmental justice, places of origin, family and chosen family, reproductive justice and bodily autonomy, borders, ancestry and lineage, and borders, nationalism, and colonialism.
