What if we told you that in 3 days a crazy powerhouse of women in the form of artists, musicians, chefs, photographers, entrepreneurs, activists, inventors, storytellers, and designers would be under one roof connecting, supporting, and sharing their entrepreneurial tricks of the trade? You wouldn’t want to miss it would you? Of course not. So snag a ticket NOW to The Other Festival.
Created by Dee Poku, WIE founder (Women, Inspiration, and Enterprise), a powerful women’s leadership network, Dee wanted to create a festival like no other. And that it is. Way more than just good music, The Other Festival leads first with a series of talks with over 25 talented makers who are breaking the rules and redefining how business is done. On the roster, names like Beverly Bond, founder of Black Girls Rock, Aurora James, Creative Director of Brother Vellies, and Selby Drummond, Accessories Director of Vogue have got us more than excited.
Recently called “the Beyonce of the corporate world,” Dee is calling for women to support and build with one another in the pursuit of their entrepreneurial endeavors. “I wanted to create a conference that was accessible and affordable for me, my contemporaries and my peers. I wanted to provide a forum for how successful women have overcome obstacles, and share those lessons with the generations coming up,” said Dee in her interview with Black Enterprise. A general admission ticket will run you $132 (with added fees included) but as NYC based musician Lee Anderson said, “This is going to help us advance our careers, $125 well spent.”
