Contribute to the Femme Wall of Fame

As part of the 2019 Femme Wave, Calgary's Feminist Music and Arts Festival

The Femme Wall of Fame, sponsored by the University of Calgary Women’s Studies Program, is a new addition to Femme Wave (Calgary's Feminist Music and Arts Festival) for 2019.

We build our movement from the work that came before us—but how much do we know about our own past? The Femme Wall of Fame is a chance for us to help define the legacy of feminist/queer/trans artists and activists who demanded space for our voices and our bodies, and made possible the movement we have today. Take a moment to acknowledge our past by writing down your best memories:

  • A favourite gender or sexual warrior of Calgary’s past and present
  • A landmark show or event that helped catalyze a movement
  • A festival or exhibition that showcased our diversity and power
  • A venue or space that fostered creativity and community

Your input will help design future courses and outreach programs that recognize Calgary’s vibrant arts activism. Find the Femme Wall of Fame at the following Femme Wave events:

  • Thursday, November 7th Dickens Pub (1000 9 Ave SW), Doors Open 6:30 PM
  • Friday, November 8th Legion #1 (116 7 Ave SE) Doors Open 8:00 PM
  • Saturday, November 9th Palomino (109 7 Ave SW) Doors Open 6:30 PM
