Celebrate Equal Voice

Join us for Equivox, Hedgebrook’s annual brunch and fundraiser celebrating the movement for equal voice.

Stories connect us. Our event celebrates women’s stories as vehicles for change and engages support for the Hedgebrook community. Come to share your own story and learn how you can support women writers.

Tickets to Equivox are no longer available. Please consider making a donation in lieu of attendance by purchasing a spirit seat.

Featuring filmmaker, author, speaker, activist, and Hedgebrook alumna Holly Morris, and playwright, singer-songwriter, performer, teaching artist and alumna Shontina Vernon, along with performances, testimonials and conversation with writers from Hedgebrook’s diverse alumnae community.

Holly’s recent award-winning documentary The Babushkas of Chernobyl was supported in part by Hedgebrook. She is also known for her award-winning PBS series, “Adventure Divas” and book, Adventure Divas: Searching the Globe for a New Kind of Heroine.

Shontina’s interdisciplinary work fuses live music, poetic narrative, and multi-media to tell the diverse stories of underrepresented communities. She is currently working on HER BLACK BODY POLITIC, a new work that will premiere as part of the 2016 On the Boards Northwest New Works Festival.
