SOFemArt is a community-driven platform and app of artists and advocates committed to amplifying the voices and work of women artists through mentorship, resources, opportunities, funding, and curation. We aim to reframe gender biases and false perceptions about the education, skill, intellect, or talent of women creatives across the arts and entertainment industries. We do this by putting a lens back on raw talent, putting the resources in the hands of artists, and putting the power of amplification back into the hands of fans to work towards a more equitable arts, entertainment, and tech industry.
A great artist is a great artist, but the data has shown that the playing field for men and women looks vastly different. At the State of Fem Art, we don't just want to level the playing field. We want to change the narrative. We realize there is more we can do to ensure that women artists and their creative works are seen, heard, funded, and executed at the highest level. We're providing the resources and opportunities that help bring gender parity to a predominately male-driven industry while amplifying women artists to the fullest extent.
Here's how we do it.
To create opportunities for women artists to be seen, funded, and supported through education, mentorship, community, advocacy, and recognition.
This work isn't for one of us. It's for all of us.
TOGETHER, we will create solutions to tackle current inequities in the arts and entertainment industries.
Women artists are not a monolith, but as a collective, what we create can be infinite, deep-reaching, and life-giving when we choose to create, collaborate, support, and connect with each other. Our community is inclusive and strives to make sure that the lived experiences and work of our beautifully diverse community remain respected and honored at all times.
