ABOUT OUR PARTNERS
Full Femme is an artistic collective for creative in alignment with the feminine and/or live in the margins of gender. It was started in 2019 to uplift and provide a platform to these artists in Ottawa/Gatineau. Full Femme is a space (both virtual and real life) where creative can collaborate, share opportunities and create long-lasting friendships.
A NOTE FOR PARTICIPANTS
Please note that participation in Expansion workshop livestreams is reserved for Black creatives. Recordings of the workshops will be made accessible to all at a later date.
Expansion workshops are a unique space for Black facilitators and participants to address challenges, and identify strategies and opportunities specific to their experience. G101’s partner in this project, Full Femme, is a Black-led arts collective. This project is a result of their labour, for their community.
