Riverwest Fem Fest

Riverwest FemFest is an annual weekend community music and arts festival celebrating the powerful and positive impact women can have on each other and the community around them. Founded in 2015, we celebrate the empowerment that comes with surrounding yourself with people who push you to push yourself. We celebrate through music, art, and poetry. We not only celebrate the impact the women within our own community have on us, we celebrate women (and others who support women) everywhere.

Femfest is also a fundraiser, with all proceeds from the fest going towards organizations within our city of Milwaukee that aim to help and protect women. Due to the alarming rise in date rape drug usage within our community, this year we will be teaming up with Date Rape Awareness Milwaukee (DRAM) to provide all Riverwest bars with date rape test strips in an effort to protect and support each other. We will donate the remaining proceeds from the fest to the Milwaukee Women’s Center, a division of Community Advocates that houses and supports men, women, and children dealing with domestic violence, mental health issues and substance abuse.

4 grrls: pt. ii

"4 grrrls: pt.ii" is the second installment of a collaboration between Melissa Johnson, Sarah Sickles, Elizabeth Rath, and Marissa Macias that explores ideas of femininity and the existence of an authentic human experience in artificial spaces.

"4 grrrls: pt.ii" is the inaugural exhibition at THE LUNCHBOX, which is a white wall gallery within the After School Special studio space that is approximately 8ft x 8ft x 8ft. Programming for THE LUNCHBOX is planned by members of A.S.S. on a rotating basis and serves to platform experimental curatorial endeavors and projects by local, national, and international emerging artists.

This rendition of THE LUNCHBOX is made with love by A.S.S. member Kayle Karbowski.

***"4 grrrls: pt.ii" will be on display until January 23rd, gallery hours are by appointment only. Please email afterschoolspecialmke@gmail.com to schedule an appointment!***
