ON THE BLOG:
In 2017, #bossbabesATX hosted 47 events, with more than 15,000 attendees. We are looking forward to providing an even larger platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity Texas-based women artists, women-owned businesses and nonprofits in 2018.
As a young organization, we know as well as anyone doing the work, that creating real change requires small, consistent baby steps. We hope to continue taking those steps so that we can do more, and be more to more women, in 2018. These are our top nine stories of 2017.
As ever, our community is filled gill-to-gill with women who are doing it—there's no other way to put it. As 2017 comes to an end, we're recognizing six incredible Austin-based women for their resilience, commitment to equality and all-around talent as organizers, creators, artists and leaders for change.
This post continues our monthly tarotscope series with Solaris the Hii Priestess, one of our regular exhibiting artists and routine collaborators. Each month, Solaris draws cards for each astrological sign and interprets your forecast.
Boss Babes ATX Resident Artist Marianna Pasaret talks about her process, compares digital sketching to traditional drawing, and discusses her latest project, THE HEART. Look out for her work at our December 13 meet.
On Nov. 7 at Lewis Carnegie Design Studio, we hosted a collaborative panel, in conjunction with Austin Design Week and &FEMINIST, to explore the intersections of personal/political narratives and our social/built environment. Read on below for a recap.
At our last meet, we asked 'What is your resistance?' You answered by telling of both who and what you resist and how you practice resistance, referencing both politics and personal demons.
On September 28 at REVELRY, we hosted the third and final session in our summer installation of our SHE TALKS series exploring lifestyle design.
The East Austin Studio Tour returns this weekend and next. We've rounded up the talented painters, sculptors, and creators you don't want to miss, plus a few fun events to keep the expressive vibes flowing.
For some of us, a brave space looked like home. It looked like trust and love and friends. For the organizers, it looked like the photoshoot. For me, it looked like a #bossbabesATX meet. We didn't really reach a consensus, because safety and comfortability are personal. We did agree that "brave spaces" are still dangerous and that safety was and hadn't been guaranteed, even in the spaces we feel safest. So, are we ever safe? If not, what is a brave space? And if if those spaces are personal, how do we make one for larger groups? And if they still could be dangerous, hell, why should we? Are we destined to be governed by fear?
This year, we want to raise $8,000 and we think we can do it with your help. On Jan. 26 at Cheer Up Charlie’s, we’ll raise our glasses to another year of hustling for effective, positive change in our communities, while making money moves for ourselves and four other vital community-based nonprofits.
At the start of ever year, we host Community Caucus, an annual gathering for activists, nonprofits and thought leaders to present issues, share ideas and discuss plans for effective change. In 2018, we'll host Community Caucus at the Austin Central Public Library on Feb. 15 from 6 to 9 PM! See ya there.
