July 2018 – February 2019
We are so excited to be teaming up with The Institute of Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies of McGill University to co-host a screening of the No Man’s Land Film Festival!
No Man’s Land is an all-woman adventure film festival based out of the Rocky Mountains of Colorado that meets a need and desire to highlight and connect individuals who identify as women in pursuit of the radical. They seek to bring attention to women’s presence in the outdoors. This 90 minute screening – focused on women in climbing – will be followed by a panel discussion about gender and sports.
All proceeds will benefit the development of a program for self-identified girls and women in the outdoors, organized by Shakti Rock Gym. This event costs $10 – but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Please join us!
Doors at 6:15. Show at 6:30. 90 minute run time.
Location: Leacock Building | 855 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest | Room 132 | Montréal, QC H3A 0C4 | Canada
Free Beginner Workshop
For self-identified women and girls
This year, as a result of our collaboration with the McGill Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist studies, (IGSF, McGill) as well as with the No Man’s Land Film Festival we are excited to be offering a series of free events and workshops for self-identified women and girls. The aim of these events is to minimize barriers to entry to the sport of climbing, as well as to create a welcoming space in which women and girls can connect and explore the world of adventure sport. On the horizon are a series of beginner workshops, as well as women-led outdoor climbing trips. We hope you’ll join us!
Contact us directly to reserve your spot at 438-380-4848, or drop by the gym. Each workshop is capped at 12 participants. Please be mindful not to block the participation of others by reserving a place and not showing up! If you reserve: BE THERE.
