The art was amazing, the performers sublime, the Night of Creative Empowerment III was inspiring. Thank you to everyone who joined Women Rising and Backwater Arts Gallery for this unique event.

We hope everyone who attended felt inspired and empowered and we want to thank everyone who was involved in this incredible effort!

We are happy to announce that our event gained widespread recognition throughout the community and we have received amazing feedback from artists and community members who have been longing for just such an organization to host spaces for female artists.

In addition the night raised $619 which will go directly to funding our Mural Projects in the downtown area. Artists and the spaces are all on board and now with the funds provided we are ready to put the pedal to the medal. If you are interested in volunteering your time and/or painting skills to these amazing murals please email womenrisinginfo@gmail.com.
