Winter Solstice Party says
Join the greater In Other Words chosen family for a fun, festive, feminist Winter Solstice night with music, food, and crafts. All of the magic of the "holidays" without the capitalism, racism, and patriarchy, and with some old time witchery added back in!

COMMUNITY ALTAR: Please bring a non-culturally appropriative item (i.e. no dreamcatchers or feathers if you are not Indigenous, no African images unless you are Black/African etc) that represents what Winter Solstice means to you, or a wish that you would like to cultivate in your life as the sunlight returns! Ideas include small art pieces, greenery (leaves/branches/pinecones), candles, stones/crystals, poems, cups, flowers, photos etc. Please no knives or other dangerous objects.

TAROT READINGS available from Feral Tarot!

READING/RELEASE of the first issue of Grand Mother zine:
"GRAND MOTHER is a seasonal portland, oregon based collective zine. It is a space for femme folx to gather and exchange images, ideas, and creations of all kinds. In order to build outside of ourselves, it is vital to build within ourselves - as individuals, and as a collective web. Who is your grand mother? Who or what created that which created you? Do you have many grand mothers? Through blood or spirit, presence or absence, who paved the path your spirit may now walk upon?"
