"I'm not a shopaholic, I'm helping the economy...

We get it: in this political climate, retail therapy is sometimes necessary. So why not use social change to justify your shopping habit?

Join Deeds Not Words on Saturday, December 2nd from 11:30 am to 2 pm for #DeedsFest, a family-friendly festival powered by Pentagram to support local arts and activism.


They have some of Austin's best designers creating original T-shirts to support Deeds Not Words, a local nonprofit founded by Wendy Davis to empower the next generation of women making change. As we always say: wear your heart on your sleeve, and your cause on your shirt.

What you have to look forward to:

Industry Print Shop will be silk-screening T-shirts on site
** Erin Ivey and special guests will be playing sweet, sweet tunes
*** Local businesses will be keeping you fed and watered, like
Lucy's Fried Chicken
- Maudie's TEX-MEX
- Austin Beerworks (We'll have sodas and water, too)
**** Did someone say hair-braiding?

Deeds Not Words is creating a space where artists and activists join forces, and you're invited!
