Gran Canaria Espacio Digital organizes the Empoderarte days from November 6 to 20, with the participation of the Argentine filmmaker Lula Gómez, the young illustrator Lola Vendetta (alter ego of Raquel Riba Rossy) and the singer Amparo Sánchez (Amparanoia), who will offer in the aforementioned Schamann center enough reasons to continue adding for equality.
The activity is held in person and online through the Webex platform. Two workshops, one on illustration and the other on stop-motion, two conferences and a micro-concert make up Empoderarte’s offer. Thus, on November 6, at 7:00 p.m., Amparo Sánchez (Amparanoia), one of the pioneers of fusion music in Spain, opens the conference with the presentation of her book La Nina y el Lobo. After the presentation, he will offer a micro-concert in the courtyard of Espacio Digital, whose seats are already covered.
Then, the Argentine animator Lula Gómez, creator of La Academia de Animación, launched at the end of 2017 the web series of short chapters Eres una caca. Street harassment, control, violence, re-victimization … All this in the mouth of talking poops representing macho attitudes. On November 11, at 7:00 p.m., Lula Gómez will talk about her popular series made through stop motion technology in which, from a feminist perspective, she faces so much misogynistic horror.
For the Catalan illustrator Lola Vendetta (alter ego of Raquel Riba Rossy), feminism is not suffered, feminism is enjoyed! In the conference Lola is better than badly accompanied, which she will deliver on November 18 (7:00 p.m.), the creator will talk about the identity of a cisgender woman in a world built by and for cisgender men. On November 19 and 20, the artist directs the illustration workshop entitled How to create your credible feminist character from scratch, showing her processes and techniques.
