Event description

Description

Original Womxn’s Narratives (OWN) is an annual theatrical production put on by the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo Gender Equity Center, part of the Cross Cultural Centers under the Division of Student Affairs. The show features, centers, and celebrates the stories of our Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo community members who have experienced life as a womxn in body, mind, and/or spirit, be that in past, present, future, and/or fluid.

In addition to the performances, our OWN production features an Art Gallery comprised of Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo community members. The works are representative of a multitude of experiences, and the many ways we experience womxnhood. Across multiple media forms and encompassing a wide variety of topics, each piece ties into the theme we’ve selected this year: "exploring the less-known stories of people who have experienced life as a womxn in body, mind, and/or spirit, be that in past, present, future, and/or fluid."

Happy, sad, funny, heartbreaking; the production includes narratives and art pieces submitted by the Cal Poly community and gives voice to stories too often unheard. Join us at one of two performances: Saturday, April 13, 2019 from 6:00-10:00pm or Sunday, April 14, 2018 from 6:00-10:00pm.


*Please be aware that the subject matter and language in the show is strong and may be inappropriate for young viewers.

***To create a space that is accessible to as many people as possible, we plan to have 1-2 ASL Interpreters working for the full length of the show and the Auditorium is accessible for our community members of all physical abilities. Additionally, all restrooms on the same floor as Chumash Auditorium will be Gender Neutral. Lastly, if cost is a barrier to you attending, please contact us and we will be happy to work something out with you! See our contact information below!!!
