Lorena Elke: Crazy Cat Lady Collective

, , Grantee Link >

Canadian activist Lorena Elke received a CAF grant for the creation of a calendar, with photos by Jo-Anne McCarthur, for the Crazy Cat Lady Collective, an artistic and provocative advocacy project created to help educate people about the plight of homeless and feral cats. The Collective writes: “Women in society who help cats are typically labelled ‘crazy’ and are often ridiculed and condemned for their love, commitment, and special connection to cats. CCLC plans to interrupt this dominant discourse by reclaiming the age-old ‘crazy cat lady’ stereotype and infusing it with a sassy, political and compassionate message.”
