The ANNEX (ˈaneks)
:a building joined to or associated with a main building, providing additional space or accommodations.
A conversation about a brick & mortar space that supports the open exchange of ideas and risk-taking by women artists, makers, and healers. The space will provide visibility, opportunity and support. It is an alternative to mainstream pop-ups, that most women of color, marginalized and single women are priced out of. In order for this idea to thrive it will need a network of active participants. Participants will invest in The Annex on a month to month basis to allow them economic independence and collective support at the same time. The Annex offers women an opportunity to gather together and address specific community needs as it pertains to their art, growing a business and education. For each member of The Annex, it is an opportunity for personal growth, income, artistic expression, education, development of the community and leadership skill building/sharing.
