"Hidden Cities" - No matter our place in society, we all have our Hidden City , a place of refuge from gender, race, class and sexual exclusions, a place that shapes the feminist viewpoint. Some cities, like wrapped boxes, conceal unexpected gifts, others are riddles and lyrical abstractions. These are performative spaces where we may imagine retribution for injustices, righting wrongs or conversely, delving into the dark side.

Artists are invited to explore their idea of their Hidden City, real or imagined, in an array of media. The theme may be broadly interpreted from an activist, political or personal context. Convince the viewer of its viability, a live space filled with passion and imagination.
