craftHER Market SPRING '19 will pop up A FAIR MARKET IN AUSTIN, TEXAS on APRIL 14, 2019. Applications WILL OPEN IN JANUARY 2019.
At #bossbabesATX, all of our productions are centered around sustaining communities that care about gender equality and supporting local, creative businesses.
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. In its two years of production, craftHER Market has showcased more than 450 makers and seen 10,000+ attendees and 1,300+ applicants. Opening every Spring and Fall, the day-long community event features entrepreneurial panels, opportunities to support local nonprofits and family-friendly activities. Reflecting a myriad of women and nonbinary artists and creative entrepreneurs across Texas, all 125 of our seasonal exhibitors own their craft, and at least 90% of our booths exhibit wares made by hand.🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈🎈
craftHER Market is produced by a team of staff and volunteer committee members at #bossbabesATX. #bbatx is a nonprofit organization that amplifies women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers. Our event series, showcases, strategic collaborations and professional development programs provide a platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity to 1000+ emerging women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers per year. On top of that goodness, the public-at-large is invited to participate and learn more about how gender inequality affects their daily lives. More than 10,000+ community members annually attend our showcases, markets and dialogues—and in the last three years, our programs generated an additional $1million for the Austin economy.
2018’s markets were supported in part by our partners at Volusion and Fair Market. Fall ‘18’s in-kind contributors and supportive brands include Capital One, Party at the Moontower Rentals, MY EVENT IS THE BOMB and Austin Woman Magazine. This project was also supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
