Event description

Description

missfits fest is a one day festival celebrating Asian-American women in entrepreneurship and the arts produced by collective blue and in bold company.

Our goal is to bring visibility to self-identifying female Asian-American entrepreneurs and creatives and provide them with an opportunity to share and profit from their work while building community.

During the day, we’ll have a pop up gallery of curated artists, an interactive storytelling booth, stand up comedy, and speaker panels on:

  • FOB (fresh off the breakdown): mental health in the Asian-American and Pacific Islander community

  • Memoirs of a Gaysian: sexuality and gender identity

  • To all the Asians I haven’t seen in movies: media representation

  • How to tell your parents you’re not an engineer, doctor, or lawyer: pursuing a creative career

At night, programming includes a market of female Asian-American and Pacific Islander makers, cultural dance performances, and live music along with an outdoor night market of local food vendors. We’ll round out the night with dancing with tunes from our favorite Asian-American female DJs.

Join us in celebrating Asian-American women and their multidimensional identities.

All are welcomed.
