DIRTY WHITE MATTER is a community-based project that uses art, group discussion and recorded interviews to confront whiteness and white femininity and to increase accountability.
Everyone is welcome, no matter your gender, race, age, sexual orientation, etc… POC who attend have the option to listen to the conversation and do not have to speak unless they want to. White folks who attend are compassionately encouraged to participate in the conversation.
Participants will be invited to manipulate materials that visually represent harmful ideas of whiteness and white femininity. While we work, we’ll listen to recorded interviews with local women of color who were paid for their time and discuss their experiences with whiteness. Afterward, we’ll discuss as a group.
Events are donation-based. Suggested donation is $5-$10 which is used to pay interviewees and cover the cost of materials. Everyone is welcome regardless of whether or not they donate.
