missfits is an event series celebrating self-identifying Asian-American women in entrepreneurship and the arts produced by collective blue and in bold company. Our goals are to bring visibility to self-identifying female Asian-American entrepreneurs and creatives, provide them with an opportunity to share and profit from their work, and build community.
We’re back for Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with the same goals in a more intimate setting.
In collaboration with Miranda Bennett Studio, we’re throwing a Sunday social to celebrate our shared histories as Asian-American womxn. Join us for community, a moderated panel, and opportunities to shop from female Asian-American makers curated by MBS.
We’ll also have light refreshments, an interactive art installation using zero waste scraps from Miranda Bennett Studio, and chances to win some fire raffle prizes.
We’ll be in the MBS retail store on the Eastside, so our attendance is capped at 50 people.
All are welcomed. 18+
