Ladyfest Leeds (UK) 2007 is going to be a week long extravaganza of arts events taking place in venues across Leeds - all in the name of celebrating creativity, diversity and promoting gender equality. It will take place from TUESDAY 10th TO SUNDAY 15th APRIL 2007. Ladyfest Leeds aims to break down the barriers between the art world and those of us who are creative every day – we want to celebrate the talents of *all* women.
Ladyfest aims to bring together the energy, ideas and experience of individuals, voluntary and community organisations, colleges and universities, and the statutory sector.
In Leeds we are extending the Ladyfest ethos to include people of all genders and sexualities at every level of organising and staging the events. We also intend our planners, performers and artists to represent the diverse population of Leeds in terms of age, ethnicity, ability and social class. We want Ladyfest and its related events and meetings to be an accessible, comfortable space for everyone who wants to contribute.
We are holding a series of benefit events, exhibitions, performances, concerts and workshops in the months leading up to the festival. These events will aim to involve individuals and groups from across Leeds who have not previously worked together. The events will be opportunities to build networks and raise funds to make Ladyfest Leeds bigger and better.http://ladyfestleeds.co.uk/

Ladyfest Ottawa 2006
I'm a New Zealander travelling to Hungary for study in November and then to Germany for a week to catch up with friends, and then to England for a week and a half to holiday.
I'm really interested in finding out more info about gigs and clubs that are on at the beginning of Decemeber in London as I'll be there then and in all honesty NZ lacks a lot in the riot grrrl, homocore, queercore scene.
I really wanted to go to Homo a Gogo this year, but I can't afford anymore overseas trips. I've been to Ladyfest in Auckland a few years ago, and have been looking to see if I could go to anymore whilst in Europe, but to no avail.
What sort of things could anyone suggest?
I've heard that Club Motherfucker is good in London. Any other suggestions?
Some of my favourite bands are the Gossip, the Butchies, Sleater-Kinney, Le Tigre, Bikini Kill, Mirah, Team Dresch, Amy Kasio, Audio Porn etc.
See my profile for more info.
I'd also be interested in meeting up with people in London with similar interests.
Sorry if I end up spamming your communities.
