Steel City Stories presents two shows in recognition of International Women’s Day on Friday, March 10th at 7:30 pm and Saturday, March 5th at 1 pm. Both shows are at Mills Hardware and doors open half an hour before the show starts. Find event details and ticket information here.
At our show on Friday, March 10 we’ll be celebrating the launch of the second volume of locally produced zine THRIVER, and the debut performance of the newly formed choir, Singin’ Women.
This is our second volume of locally produced zine, THRIVER!
The first volume (pictured above and still available) was focused on Violence Against Women and launched in November 2016.
Their second volume is focused on International Women’s Day (March 8th).
A group of women convened on Wednesday nights, because they along with their editors Patty, Paula and Marley, didn’t have anything else to do. No, seriously they are totally committed to speaking up through their zine for women!
For the last six weeks they have used different mediums including poetry, art, sketching, puzzles and interviews to try to communicate the importance of women’s lives in society, past, present and future. What would the world look like without women, in it?
Singin’ Women is a Hamilton-based community choir made up of women who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness along with a smattering of allies. Under the direction of Laura Thomas and with accompanist Stephanie Theuerkauf, 15-20 women have been singing together each week since January 12, 2017. Friday, March 10 will be their first public performance.
