WHAT DO WE DO?
We’re a Texas-based nonprofit that amplifies and connects women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers. We create space to share our crafts, catalyze multi-industry coalitions, promote intersectionality across disciplines, seek guidance and provide each other with practical and emotional resources. Anyone interested in our mission, core values, and initiatives are invited to participate—and learn more about how intersectional gender equality can improve their daily lives.
HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?
We provide 1500 opportunities to women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers per year. More than 15,000+ community members also annually attend our showcases, markets and dialogues—and in the last three years, our programs generated an additional $1million for the Austin economy. So, whether you apply to participate in one of our programs, attend our workshops, conferences and dialogues, or come out to a festival or market to support the community we’re building, you’re a member of this movement. All babes, all people, are welcome. :)
This winter, our theme is: resilience.
resilience (n.): the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
We are creative risk-takers. Strong and capable decision-makers. Bold and powerful makers. Which means we bounce back. We push forward. And when we fail, we try again.
Through February 2019, our programs will center women and nonbinary thought leaders, artists, creatives and business-owners who demonstrate a soft power—an unmatched toughness—in both their failures and successes. Together, we’ll learn from their stories and redefine what it means to recover, reclaim and remain standing.
