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.
And what time is that? Festival time! Isis Women Arts is preparing for its annual arts festival and we know it is going to be spectacular as usual. Stay tuned for the Call for Artists with all the details.
Not really but Isis Women Arts has launched an Indiegogo campaign and we really would like your support. Since its inception, the Isis Women Arts Festival has been built off the blood, sweat, tears and pockets of our dear director, Kathryn Hightower. Though each festival has been a success with a large turnout, the expenses have been hefty. This is why we have launched our campaign. To keep the festival going and to sustain our operations, we desire financial backing. We are not a profit agency but a collective present to support and empower the woman artist. We have a vision to increase not only our festival but to continue to build community throughout the year with workshops. It’s a part of our mission. It is who we are. As singer-songwriter Paula Cole once stated, “I hope and believe we are paving a better future for female artists to come.” Isis Women Arts hopes and believes this as well. Do you? Would you be so willing to give today?
Spring is approaching fast and so is the 6th Annual isis Women Arts Festival. Artistic goddesses are bringing the goods once again. This time we’ll be making our mark at the Hillman City Collaboratory in Seattle, WA on May 2. We will have a showcase a variety of amazing, talented performing and visual artists from painters, photographers, dancers, musicians, and more. Doors open at 7pm. Suggested donation is $10 but we welcome everyone with open arms. See you there!
