Produced in partnership with Austin Design Week and co-programmed with our friends at &FEMINIST, #bossbabesATX is proud to present Reclaiming Space: Equality and Place-making on Nov. 7 from 6 to 9 PM at Lewis Carnegie Studio (1312 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702). This panel will explore the stories of four multidisciplinary individuals, reshaping narratives through community, architectural and social design. The event will open with a portraiture installation by &FEMINIST and close with a screening of Sista in the Brotherhood produced by Dr. Roberta Hunte. Throughout, we'll attempt to contextualize the links between our culture, actions and social/built environments.
Meet the panelists:
About the film:
Presented by Open Architecture: Austin, we're happy to include a screening of SISTA IN THE BROTHERHOOD at this event. Sista in the Brotherhood is a 20 minute short about a black, apprentice carpenter who faces discrimination on the job and must choose between taking a stand or keeping her job. It was inspired by the thesis of producer, Dr. Roberta Hunte and partially based on the experience of journey level carpenter/director Dawn Jones Redstone. It was filmed on the Sellwood Bridge construction project in Portland, Oregon.
This event is free and open to the public. We suggest securing an RSVP for updates on the event and more information regarding the evening's discussion.

About &FEMINIST: And feminist is meant to be a neutral, non-confrontational collection of environmental portraits that humanizes the label by bringing in two more descriptors chosen by each subject to show a fuller view of who they are whether that be family, religion, career, or lifestyle focused. Many people are something in addition to a label of their belief in equality. A fuller sentence of ____________, _____________, and feminist paired with portraits of people in their daily environments aims to show how universal the needs and wants for equality are today.
