About LadyFest Bay Area & What to Expect At L.F.B.A. 2004

Inspired by the phenomenal success of Ladyfest Bay Area 2002, LFBA 2004 volunteers decided it was time for another San Francisco-based event. The original Ladyfest was started in Olympia, WA in 2000, and since then Ladyfests have blossomed into a worldwide phenomena, spanning four continents.

Ladyfest Bay Area offers workshops, live music and spoken word shows, opportunities to sell handmade crafts and zines, film screenings, spoken word events, and much, much more. It is a festival in the DIY, or Do It Yourself spirit- it is not sponsored by corporations, the workshops don’t require expensive materials, and the bands are there because they support Ladyfest’s feminist, activist and artistic ideals. We’re committed to keeping the costs of the events low (The average of 2002’s Ladyfest was

$5) so everybody interested has access. All genders are welcome.

Workshops have ranged from zine-making, self-defense, anti-Racist feminism, sexuality, creating your own cable access show, to screen- printing, independent publishing, DIY travel, better body image, media and the Middle East, and transgender youth.

Photography, mixed media, paintings, drawings, sculpture, comic and zine art and more will be part of Ladyfest’s art program, while everyone from hip-hop to spoken word artists to indie rockers to poets and will appear on the Ladyfest stage.

Film programs typically include everything from politically-involved documentaries to experimental shorts. Examples of past offerings are Re-Framing 9/11: Women’s Art and Activism and Development And Displacemen and Re-Envisioning Sex: Women and Transmen Make Porn.

Last but not least, Ladyfest will hold a bazaar in which crafts, zines, homemade clothing and other DIY products will be sold, giving sellers a showcase for their work and buyers an opportunity to support them.

In one festival day, a person could see an art gallery showing of local women artists, attend a workshop on fighting body fascism, watch a documentaru film, learn to knit, and then round off the night with an indie-rock band. What is so unique about Ladyfest is not simply that we offer these lady-friendly events, but that we bring them all together so that an individual can pick and choose what interests them- and with the vast amount of opportunities, there is bound to be something. People come together to hear music, see art, learn in workshops and hear the voices of women and people who are ignored in the mainstream media- Ladyfest is a truly unique event!
