Women Who Rock (Un)Conference 2016

WWR Logo 2016 DRAFT1 (1)

The 6th Annual Women Who Rock (un)Conference will be held on April 7 and 8, 2016 at Heritage University. The annual (un)Conference is participant-driven and centered around issues of gender, race, class and sexuality. Our goal is to expand on “who” counts as women and “what” counts as rock. The (un)Conference includes dialogue about women, music and social justice; small group sessions; tradition and skills sharing workshops; music making; and children’s activities.

This year, Women Who Rock seeks to achieve our goal by focussing on creating opportunities for local, trans-national and trans-temporal through dialogue about Indigeneity, womanhood and maintaining connections to history through traditions. The National Public Radio, Latino USA radio show produced by Maria Hinojosa on the relationship between Latinos and Native Americans on the Yakama Reservation has been a source of inspiration for this conference.
