LADIES LUGGING GEAR - JANUARY SALON
Come one, come all fine female forces to Ladies Lugging Gear.
This month, as before, we'll galavant and get to know one another as well as bask in the presence and works of several brilliant homegrown creatives.
LLG is excited to bring you Becca Lemire, life documenter and photographer-in-residence at popular Toronto blog She Does the City.
We'll also get to meet and see a bit of the upcoming documentary about Attawapiskat from Vicki Lean, Jade Blair and Stef McCarrol. Director Vicki Lean has met with Chief Theresa Spence some time ago for filming as well as recently during her hunger strike.
We also bring you Sarah Pinder, a poet working in video and live performance who will bring both elements of her practice to the evening.
As usual, there will be food, drinks, and merry-making in between each presentation.
Location: the Tendril Studio at 119 Spadina Ave (at Adelaide), Suite 800 (8th floor)
Time: 8-11pm on Thursday January 24th.
Do not miss it! Looking forward to seeing you there.

PS - Curious about what it's all about?
For those unfamilar, the purpose of LLG is to come get to know one another, demo projects and get feedback, bounce ideas around for collaboration, divulge in some skill sharing, and generally poke at the fire to see what new creative relationships might arise for us all. There are tons of women in the city who fit into the category; they’re brilliant, they tell stories, they use non-traditional techniques to do so, and most of all: we want to meet them.
While LLG’s gatherings are salon-style, they’re not about academic laurel resting. LLG provides a more progressive and safe space for emerging women in media to get going as well as more experienced media-makers. We strive to create a positive environment where women come to share their ideas, questions, tips, and advice on the basis of project-empowerment and a celebration of female know-how.
Lastly, while Ladies Lugging Gear is created for women, it is really a group that supports all under-represented people in technology and media. LLG is a trans-positive space, as well as a community that welcomes men. Ultimately, the gist is that LLG is a celebration of the work of all women-identifying people.
