Call for Artists is now open for the 8th Annual Women Arts Festival!

golden-isisLast year’s festival at the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle was a whirlwind of dance  and vocal performances in one room and  a visual art showcase in the other. Participants and guests met and mingled to celebrate women-identified self-expression in true Goddess fashion!

This year, we will be at the Mokedo Art Gallery and Event Space on Saturday, April 22nd to continue the celebration and vital conversation. Now more than ever, building strong arts communities is key to visibility. Isis Women Arts is committed to creating a safe performance and event space for trans and cis women artists’ talents to be seen and heard.

The Call for Artists is now officially open! Remember, the Deadline is March 15th , and will be here before you know it, so get those applications to us as early as you can. We at the Goddess Collective can’t wait to see what you are creating this year!

The 7th Annual Women Arts Festival is approaching. We are ready. Are you?

Who can believe it’s almost been a year since our last festival? It didn’t seem that far ago since we were dancing to the rhythm of steel drums from the Rainbow Girls, gazing in awe at the visual works of art from influences such as Aramis Hamer, and stopping ourselves from accompanying Mari Soul and Animals of Grace on stage. Well, if you missed out, it’s okay. We’re back again for the 7th Annual Isis Women Arts Festival on Saturday, May 14th. This time we are setting up the stage at the Northwest African American Museum in Seattle. Join us for an evening of dance, music,poetry, breathtaking art, and more. Doors open at 7:30pm. See you there! Oh and how could we forget: Admission is free.
