Feminist, artist, musician, and citizen of humanity Ally Bernstein ’13 is continuing the discussion:

How can we foster an inclusive and exciting music and arts scene at Wesleyan?

Recently, I wrote an opinion piece about the lack of female performers in Spring Fling (since then, Girl#$wag has been added to the line-up; shout out Emma Daniels ’13). Members of the band Whore Paint (hailing from Providence, RI) will be on campus at 4:00 PM to discuss their experiences and answer questions. All are welcome to come share and discuss strategies for fostering an empowering scene at Wesleyan.

Date: Saturday, May 4
Time: 4:oo PM
Place: Room 113, 41 Wyllys
