The opening performance was extremely attention grabbing. We weren’t able to take videos or pictures because it was a traditional song from her family however her voice was powerful and made the whole room echo so I won’t ever forget it. Following the performance the WWR panel went upstage and gave us some information about WWR, and what each of them are mostly involved in. The most interesting thing was the tie they made between two totally different sounds, Punk and HipHop, both of which are displays of struggle, injustice, or expressions of emotion. Next came percussion by “Fernando” I believe, which is a live band who plays a traditional “Jam Session” type performance. So many different instruments and loud bangs at once it’s pretty interesting. Kind of reminds me of improvised Jazz without the Jazz. Pretty engaging and fun to watch!
The Women Who Rock (WWR) Community will celebrate our 5th anniversary on Saturday, March 7th, with the 2015 WWR unConference, an event where we strive to create a space for women to participate together in discussing ways for Rocking Media Justice. The 2015 WWR unConference will take place on Saturday, March 7th at Rainier Valley Cultural Center, featuring a moderated roundtable dedicated to solidarity within organizers, roundtable discussions with the community, a skills-share space, where attendees can float from booth to booth, collecting different methods for rocking media justice, a cypher, and a community-created altar.
