The Support Network for Indigenous Women & Women of Colour (SNIWWOC) is happy to team up with UVic's Third Space (formerly the Women's Centre) for an informal conversation about birth control and navigating the healthcare system.

Why is it so expensive? Why is it so stigmatized to talk about? What are the current effects of the racist history of birth control? Where do non binary and trans people fit into a conversation about birth control?

Join us to vent, rant and rave on:
Wednesday, February 22
6:30pm
UVic SUB Third Space (Room B107)
(dinner will be served)

Bus tickets provided. Email: info@sniwwoc.ca with accessibility requests and dietary restrictions.

A festival staff reached out to SNIWWOC, as they would love more indigenous women and women of colour to participate. Read the message below:


Planning for The 11th Annual Integrate Arts Festival has officially begun, and we are searching for a few key members to join our team this year! The planning committee is responsible for organizing all details of the festival. It can be a great experience for those looking to hone their skills or to further their engagement with the arts community of Victoria. If you are interested in planning with us, please forward a copy of your resume and some information about yourself to info[at]integratearts[dot]ca.

The festival will be held in August, and supports local Victoria artists. We organize local galleries and arts organizations to create an art crawl, bus tour, and bike tour, while also creating our own programming with family-friendly workshops, a pop-up gallery, and theatre and music performances.

Here is our festival website: http://integratearts.ca/
