Shawna Dempsey announced as Keynote speaker at upcoming CSEA-SCÉA conference in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

Shawna Dempsey is one of Canada’s best-known performance artists. She and collaborator Lorri Millan have created pieces such as We’re Talking Vulva, a five-minute rap featuring giant female genitalia, and Lesbian National Parks and Services, a multi-media project in which uniformed Rangers protect the fragile lesbian ecosystem. Dempsey and Millan are also known for performance installations that engage the public, such as Grocery Store (a functioning grocery store in the Exchange) and Wild Ride (a carnival midway on Toronto’s Bay Street during the financial crisis).
