In Other Words is a feminist community center and our mission is to support, enrich, and empower the feminist community through literature, art, and educational and cultural events. We have three avenues available to our communities:
Our goal is to support education by making literature accessible to everyone, while promoting reading, learning, and critical thinking about radical ideas.
We operate a radical bookstore where people can find books on feminism, queer and transgender studies, sexuality, and activism/politics, as well as alternative children’s books that are not easily found at other bookstores. We are also opening a community lending library, zine library, online zine library, and feminist archives in July of 2010.
We enrich our communities by supporting local artists, craftspeople, musicians, performers, and writers – particularly those from under-represented groups. We provide the space for them to support themselves through selling their art, crafts, music, and zines, and also provide a venue space for people to display their art and abilities through cultural events like music shows, open mics, film screenings, and author readings.
Artists and musicians can hold events for free and where people can come to events for very low, sliding scale costs at a place that is also a safer space and all-ages venue.
We will empower our feminist communities by bringing community resources to life through new educational programming that will include classes, workshops, and discussion groups started in conjunction with partnering community organizations. These programming events will begin in late 2011.
