Claiming the Goddess & Re-Creating the Female-Centered World
Come and celebrate the Witch’s New Year! Join XX Amazons for this political, cultural, educational, spiritual, female-bonding event. This event is for women-born-women who actively support women-only space.
Friday, November 9 through Monday, November 12, 2018
Near Springdale, Arkansas
About the Event
We will claim the Goddess and women-born-women-only space at the XX Amazons’ Uprising. This event will be both festive and serious. We will plot and scheme to end the assaults on women-born-women-only space and celebrate the Goddess and Nature. We will work toward re-creating the female-centered world. There will be workshops, singing, drumming, strategizing, organizing, food and plenty of good women and lesbian energy. The event is open to women-born-women of all races, cultures, ethnicities and ages.
See the organizers’ bios here.
We want this event to be as accessible as we can make it in every area (hearing, physical mobility, vision, illness from chemical exposures, money, and others). We will do the best we can with what we have. The three of us at XX Amazons are funding this event in hopes it will break even. Our resources are limited. There will be more information soon and we may need your help. If you have an access issue (or more than one) let us know early if you would like to come. It will help us see if we can find solutions.
We have a small number of wheelchair accessible rooms reserved for the Uprising.
Springdale is located in northwest Arkansas in the Ozark Mountains. Northwest Arkansas extends from the Missouri border south towards Springdale, Fayetteville and Ft. Smith. The Ozark Mountains offer a variety of outdoor activities, including a visit to the first National River, the Buffalo River, located east of the more populated areas. The mild temperatures of autumn in the Ozarks make hiking local trails and boating on area lakes pleasurable.
This is an ideal time to visit this corner of Arkansas. Attractions include the Museum of Native American History and the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art to the north. To the south is Devil’s Den State Park with caves to explore, horse and hiking trails, canoeing, and rental cabins.
The University of Arkansas campus in nearby Fayetteville will be packed the weekend of our Uprising for a Saturday football game. You’ll probably be interested to know that for a brief time in the late 1970s/early 80s there existed on campus a group of lesbian activists calling themselves Razordykes (after the UA Razorback sports teams). The university soon forced them to abandon their name.
Perhaps you’ll want to come early or stay several days after the Uprising to explore our beautiful hills and hollers, creeks and streams.
The registration materials, costs and deadlines will be available soon. If you want to be notified when they are ready, please send us an email address we can use to reach you. Since space is limited, we hope you will register early.
