BOLDfest Women Rising Virtual Events

(ALL TIMES ARE FOR VANCOUVER, BC- PLEASE PLAN ACCORDING TO YOUR TIME ZONE)

Living in the Age of Covid

Saturday July 10th 11am-1pm PDT

Facilitators: Carolyn Anderson/Canada & Beth Kneller/US

Sliding Scale: $0-$25

How has the pandemic affected you, physically and mentally? Do you feel like a changed person? If so, how? How has it affected your relationship with your partner? What about your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers? What coping strategies have you employed over the past year? What worked well, what did not? What are your hopes and goals as we slowly start to emerge from this sweeping public health crisis?

Join other BOLD women in a safe, confidential, supportive online space to explore how we each have been dealing with the pandemic’s challenges and how we best move forward from here.

BOLDfest Pride Dance: DJ Spinintonic aka Alison Gorman from Queer as Funk!!

Sunday July 11th 7pm-8pm PDT

Sliding Scale: $0-$25

Celebrate Pride with BOLD Women! Transform your space into a Pride fest! Meet up with a small group of friends in the park and broadcast DJ Spinintonic’s’ tunes to celebrate the Pride festivals we will miss in person! Dress up, have fun- we might even have some prizes up our sleeve for the best dressed, best room decorated, and best dance moves! Folks will join the zoom call from their laptop, so they can see when they’re being featured on the screen. Set up a speaker so you get the best sound, get some lights going, and create a little club in your living room. Let’s party together, separately.

DJ Spinintonic: When away from the decks, DJ Spinintonic can be found leading Queer As Funk, Vancouver’s hottest LGBTQ event band, and booking some of the best musicians in town through Railtown Entertainment.

DJ Spinintonic loves to spin Motown, classic dance tracks, as well as all of your favourite pop hits. Most of all she loves playing the songs that make you want to bust a move.
