On Thursday, July 18th 2013, I was a guest on Heritage Radio’s After the Jump program which is hosted by Design*Sponge founder Grace Bonney. On the show we talked about being paid what you’re worth, ways to fund creative projects, the role gender plays when it comes to doing work for free and overall the struggle of making a living as a content producer. I really enjoy talking about these topics with Grace because she has been running Design*Sponge for about 10 years and has seen the blogging industry go through various phases.
My Feminist Playing Card project is featured in a new book that just came out recently titled “Let’s Start a Pussy Riot” (Rough Trade Books). The book was created in collaboration with Pussy Riot and links together the events leading up to and after the group’s arrest and the themes that these courageous women fight for – feminism, LGBTQ rights, freedom of speech and the environment.
The initial book launch took place at Yoko Ono’s Meltdown Festival this year in London. The NYC launch will take place on Sunday, July 14th 2013 from 7-9pm at Bluestockings (172 Allen St, NYC). I was asked to be on a panel discussion about art as activism at the event with editor Jade French, Kembra Pfhaler, and Anne Sherwood Pundyk. There will also be a performance from Jeffrey Lewis and a poetry reading by Vivien Goldman.
