This workshop is designed to help participants understand the relationship between major stakeholders in public work in Colorado Springs – local government, nonprofits, and the foundations that often provide financial support for this work. The goal of this workshop is for participants to better understand the role each sector plays in Colorado Springs, and how to find your place in this “impact zone” between public and private partners. Tuesday, April 2nd at the CCE house (1008 N. Weber) 3:30-5pm

Vanessa Dion Fletcher’s performance piece Menstrual Accessory takes

the form of a live “informercial” extolling the virtues of the product that

turns period stains into glamorous designs. While Menstrual Accessory deftly leverages humor and satire, Dion Fletcher notes that it also has a serious side. She writes, “this is really poignant for me in terms of talking about what is acceptable and not acceptable, and what aspects of a female body, or a body that menstruates, are acceptable or not.

Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College

In this lunchtime talk, visiting artist and performer Vanessa Dion Fletcher will present an overview of her non-performance work, which incorporates materials such as porcupine quills, Wampum belts, and menstrual blood to reveal the complexities of what defines a body physically and culturally. She links these ideas to personal experiences with language, fluency, and understanding. The event is free and open to the public. Lunch is provided. Seating is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first served basis.

Vanessa Dion Fletcher is a Canadian Potawatomi and Lenape two-spirit artist who draws upon her role as a woman in a colonial world to create performances that challenge preconceived notions of identity. Dion Fletcher identifies as two-spirit, a term established in the 1990s to represent Indigenous queer individuals with a First Nations spiritual affiliation. Her work incorporates traditional Indigenous materials, her own body, and the natural environment to raise issues that are pertinent to First Nations today.
