The Clit Club Manifesto (2017 Transit Artist in Residency Program)

The Clit Club Manifesto: A discussion on the importance of creating networks, spaces and collaboration opportunities amongst women artists

Illustrator Celia Marquis, CHIPRC’s Arist in Residence this summer is one of the founding members of the Clit Club, a Montreal-based collective for the promotion of art made by self-identified women. CHIPRC invites all female and female identifying artists to join her in a friendly round-table to discuss how and why feminist spaces and organisations like the Club can benefit women in the arts.

About The Clit* Club
Serves as collective space that frames and encourages the growth and the affirmation of self-identified women** in their artistic practices. It believes in the importance of solidarity and the multiplicity of perspectives, and believes in women’s right to pleasure, counter-productivity and irrelevance.

So far, still in its first year, the Clit Club is responsible for publishing a collective zine, holding an afternoon of performances and readings in the park, organizing an art and craft market, and more recently, curating an exhibition and selling artwork to raise money for a non-profit feminist organization.

*Here, the word “clit” is used with reference to the symbolic clitoris. It is a way of expressing the feminine force and the creative cerebral, more than biological, emancipatory pleasure.

**The Clit Club recognizes gender as being complicated and dynamic, so it wants to be clear that by self-identified women, it also include womyn, trans and queer folks who identify along that spectrum.
