— BEHIND CRAFTHER MARKET —

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 600 makers and seen 15,000+ attendees and 1,800+ applicants. Opening every Spring and Fall, the two-day 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 150 of our seasonal exhibitors own their craft, and at least 90% of our booths exhibit wares made by hand. 🎈Check out the recap from Spring '19.

This Fall, the market returns on October 12 and 13 to Fair Market in Austin, Texas—for the first time ever as a two-day pop-up! Applications are open now for $5.

— MEET THE PRODUCERS — 

About the producers, #bossbabesATX: 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. 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. :) Learn more at bossbabes.org.
