The second annual Utopia Festival lands at W2 with film screenings, workshops, a free International Women's Day community fair, and epic evening performances. The festival showcases women in the Vancouver community "making our future through technology."
Utopia invites women involved in digital culture to share skills, celebrate creativity and promote our work as makers. The public (including men) are welcome to attend all Utopia evening events.
Ellie Gordon-Moershel interviews two festival organizers: Vicki Moulder, a PhD student at the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University. Her work explores creative collaborations at the intersection of technology and cultural production. Jen Pearson -- otherwise known as Square Root of Evil -- is a Vancouver-based electronic artist who has been composing since 1999 and playing out since 2004. She has played countless live shows in Vancouver and Europe including many popular electronic festivals.
Utopia runs from March 3-10, 2012 • W2 Media Cafe in Vancouver

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
