Celebrate International Women’s Day at the Mama Cash Feminist Festival!

Share this article

It’s almost that time of year again: International Women’s Day! On this day, we celebrate all that feminist movements around the world have fought for and achieved. We also look forward, collectively imagining what a more feminist future would look like. And what better way to envision and create that future than with the arts? 

That’s why every year on March 8th, Mama Cash organises the Mama Cash Feminist Festival. We mark this day by creating a stage for feminist artists and activists, because as bell hooks says: “The function of art is to do more than tell it like it is - it’s to imagine what is possible.” 

We invite you to join us at the Mama Cash Feminist Festival in locations throughout the Netherlands: Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Centraal Museum (Utrecht) and WORM (Rotterdam). Join us to protest the status quo with visual art, music and performance. To celebrate the work of women artists who are pursuing their dreams and goals. To create a space of connection, joy, support (and of course, dancing) that will exist not just for a day but continue to grow year-round. 

The first International Women’s Day in 1911 was a protest – and today, it still is. But it’s a celebration, too. And we hope to share it with you!
