Fem Fest: Freedom Then and Now

Caravan Theatre presents Fem Fest: Freedom Then and Now 

femfest

100 years ago, Nova Scotia women fought for the right to vote. They wanted society - its members and its laws - to recognize women’s worth and protect their needs. They wanted to stand up and be counted. Fast forward to our 2018 MeToo moment, and it’s clear, the struggle for women’s equality continues. 

Fem Fest: Freedom Then and Now is an arts festival of song, theatre, dance and spoken word celebrating the pioneering spirt of women.  

Fem Fest: Freedom Then and Now features both historical and original contemporary works by performing artists from across Nova Scotia. Together we explore diversity in age, gender expression and culture. 

Join the movement! Raise your fist! Fem Fest is on the way!
