Group 1 Sonia Singh (Live Blogger) Live Blog #1 – Womxn Who Rock (Un)Conference​

In the panel discussion part of the Women Who Rock (Un)Conference, which was the Claiming Space in the Changing City a discussion question that was important was, How do you all see people being pushed out of their respective spaces and what are they, or you doing to stop it? The first women to answer was Black Mama, a femenista artist from Ecuador. She responded to the question by telling us, the audience that one of the ways artists claim space by doing graffiti across the city to convey the message. Another way people claim space is going to restricted areas and have concerts and plays in those areas. They try to spread the information through action since they cannot get it featured in the news.
