The Southern Riot Grrrls are always left out of the narrative.

Now we can change that! 

Help the GRRRL crew get to NC to document Jack Off Jill's U.S. reunion show!
Our team of DIY-filmmakers are eager to film Jack Off Jill's one-off reunion show at The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC.

The Southern Riot Grrrls are always left out of the narrative -- until now!

This marks our entrance into the last phase of shooting for our documentary GRRRL: 25 Years of Riot Grrrl , and is the culmination of 3 years of shooting footage across this wide country, and we are excited to bring this dream to life!  Riot Grrrl is a feminist movement that incorporated music, art, social discourse and community building in order to bring a change in this misogynist western world. WCADC member Bonnie MacAllister is a part of the film.

In the upcoming election year, what does democracy mean in the United States? It's time for artists to get on their soapboxes – whether it is a conceptual soapbox (Warhol) or direct Statement Art (Jenny Holtzer) and tell us what you think about democracy in America. 
What did our forefathers intend in the Constitution with the freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, the pursuit of happiness, etc. To whom do these tenets apply in a racially, religious and politically divided country? 

GCA is asking artists to share their voices in this art-based conversation about democracy and seeks art that address and interprets these broadly.
