Civil Disobedience
Persistent and Nasty: Hope for the Future

Tue 29 January 2019

We are BACK, betchez! Our first script-reading and discussion event of this brand spanking new year.

Our broad, good-vibes theme is "Hope For the Future". We are aiming to set the tone for 2019.

Script details, the cast and the panellists will be announced via our Facebook Event Page.

Persistent and Nasty is a script-reading, debate and art as activism initiative for marginalised voices in stage and screen. Although the core principle behind Persistent and Nasty is to amplify the voices of women and trans-women, we are committed to an intersectional approach. Through a series of script readings and accompanying digital content, we aim to use the space we’ve created to provide a platform for the spectrum of marginalised voices in our culture; women, minorities, trans and LGBTQIA+.

Our goal is to create a project that is safe and supportive, but that is also an act of protest. Persistent and Nasty is about changing the cultural narrative through the stories we tell.

“The exchange provided by P&N is electric, reminiscent of the consciousness raising gatherings of the second wave but with a focus on intersectionality that has been sorely missing from so much of the mainstream feminist movement”
– Fountain Review

“It’s about the bigger picture, the bigger conversation and how we move forward, not just in our industry but socially, and in our culture”
– The Skinny

Persistent and Nasty is co-produced by live-arts production house Civil Disobedience. Find out more at https://wearecivildisobedience.com/portfolio/persistent-nasty/
