The Women’s Fund of Rhode Island (WFRI) will be hosting its final Cocktails and Conversations for 2018 on October 24 at Social Enterprise Greenhouse, 10 Davol Square, Providence, RI 02903. The event will run from 6:00-8:00pm, with a panel discussion on Feminism in Pop Culture beginning at 6:30pm.
Cocktails and Conversations features light bites, (non-alcoholic) drinks, time to network and a panel featuring:
- Lori Landay, Berklee College of Music
- Jess Brown, RISD, Community Activist and Performer
- Gloria Jean Masciarotte, Providence College and RISD
The panel discussion will cover how feminism presents itself and can be deconstructed in music, film and virtual/artificial reality. WFRI Executive Director Kelly Nevins notes, “It’s important to look at the media images we’re digesting through a gender lens because it shapes the way we see and think about women’s place in our world.”
Costumes are encouraged! Please come dressed as your favorite pop culture icon!
Pizza and non-alcoholic beverages will be served.
