FALL '17


October 1, 2017
11 AM TO 5 PM
@ Fair Market
Free + open to the public


The fall '17 Lineup:



At #bossbabesATX, we're inspired by the magic that happens when people meet. And all of our productions are centered around supporting and sustaining visibility for women-owned businesses, women in the arts and women in the Austin activist community. craftHER Market is no different. It's been inspired by a few of our favorite things: pop-up spaces, traditional marketplaces and the people who organize others to gather. 

This Fall, our craftHER panels will explore concepts of community, entrepreneurship and maker culture—through the lens of resistance. Resistance to giving up. Resistance to giving in. And resistance to accepting the status quo. With stage design by Party at the Moontower, featuring a commissioned piece by Alexandra Valenti in partnership with the LINE Hotel, the stage will also serve as a manifestation of our ethos.

Join us at the market for five free chats, each discussion touching on the magic of making something (be it goods, a lifestyle, a community, a career) for yourself. *Panels run concurrently on Oct. 1 with craftHER Market at Fair Market.
