Tis the season to support women artists and women-owned businesses. πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹πŸ‘‹

We're heading back to Empire Control Room on October 24 for our first community meet-up of the fall. This month, we're featuring multimedia artist DJ Mahealani (see more of the siren series on her Instagram), highlighting a handful of local lady vendors and as always, we've got 30 announcements from self-identifying women in Austin, sharing stories about their creative, entrepreneurial, professional and political pursuits. Come out to mingle, meet new people and learn about the Austin community.
