Transcript uumm.-! EDITED BY LYNNE MUTCHLER The Seventh National Women's Music Festival, in celebration of a decade of women's music, is dedicated to the women's music industry-the scores of producers, promoters, distributors, technicians, crews and performers who have brought the sounds and feelings of a new type of music to concert halls and to the homes of thousands of people. In 1970 the first feminist record, Angry Athis, by Maxine Feldman, was produced. Three years later Olivia records was born- today the largest feminist recording company. There are now 10 women-owned labels and over three-quarters of a million albums have been sold. The festival will be held on the campus of the University of Illinois at Champaign May 29 through June 1. In addition to open microphones and pick-up jam sessions, workshop topics will include Pornographic Images of Women, Women Composer's Orchestra, Dulcimer Technique and Construction, Techniques of Classical Guitar, Black American Music, Separatism and Witchcraft. Performing in nightly concerts will be Gwen Avery, Meg Christian, Maxine Feldman, Robin Flower & Nancy Vogl, Terry Garthwaite, Julie Homi, Mama Quilla II, Ellen Mcllwaine, Miss Safman's Ladies Choir, Mischief Mime, Holly Near, Sharon Riddell, Teresa Trull & Julie Homi, Theresa Villani-Fay, Mary Watkins, Carol Ann Wheeler & Daughter Tiffany, and ALIVE! Housing is available at nominal cost in the dorms ($7.50 per person per night), by camping (small fee, car required) or in the community (free but limited). Free childcare is available. Tickets for the four-day festival are $37 in advance ($42 at the door). Two-day tickets for the weekend ($28 or $32), single-workshop ($2) and single-concert tickets ($8.50) are also available. For registration (make check payable to NWMF) or further information contact the National Women's Music Festival, P.O. Box 2721 Station A, Champaign IL 61820, (217) 333-6443. Be sure to specify housing needs and whether you are registering for all four days or the weekend only. In the interest of changing the median income for women which is now 59 per cent of the median income for men, Volunteers in Public Schools (VIPS) is developing a new program to stimulate the interest of junior high school girls in career alternatives. If you are employed in work not traditionally considered "women's work," VIPS would like you to share your non- traditional work experiences with your younger sisters in HISD Jr. High schools. Beginning in September, VIPS will schedule volunteers to speak to junior high classes, a maximum of two hours per school visit including your travel time. To volunteer or for further information contact Anna Fisher at VIPS, 11743 North Marcia, Houston TX 77071.
