— About THE SHOW —
Pop is not yet here. Pop is an ideality. Put another way, we are not yet pop. We may never touch pop, but we can feel it as the warm illumination of a horizon imbued with potentiality. We have never been pop, yet pop exists for us as an ideality that can be distilled from the past and used to imagine a future. The future is pop’s domain. CAN YOU FEEL THE CHANGE?

About #bossbabesATX: We’re a Texas-based nonprofit that amplifies and connects women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers.

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.
