A conference sponsored by The Barnard College Women's Center

Saturday, April 15, 1978

Our fifth annual academic conference will explore how feminist works are created. In the morning panel and after- noon workshops artists, scholars and activists will discuss such questions as: What are the sources of feminist concepts, theories and images? How does a feminist creator move from the inception of an idea to a developed work? VVhat kind of support—emotional, intellectual, material, political—makes it possible to change radically the way one thinks and sees? How does a new vision, theory or concept reach an audience?
