Welcome to Femme Folks Fest. A new month-long festival in Waterloo Region dedicated to and in celebration of Women identified or presenting. Productions. Panels. Pop-Ups. Professional Development. March is #femmefolks.
Celebrated in March worldwide, International Women’s month is a focal point for the championing of women’s rights and gender equality. At present there is no consistent large-scale programming dedicated to Women in Waterloo Region to coincide with International Women’s Month.
We believe it’s time.
Femme Folks Fest is produced by Pat the Dog Theatre Creation. Founded in 2006, Pat the Dog provides an essential home for the creation of extraordinary new works of Canadian theatre. The company is led by Artistic Director Lisa O’Connell.
Pat the Dog Theatre Creation acknowledges that we are located on the Haldimand Tract, land promised to Six Nations, which included six miles on each side of the Grand River. We are on the traditional territory of the Attawandaron (Neutral Confederacy), Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples.
