femme. collective is a group of female-centric artists based in Philadelphia, PA. Formed in the summer of 2015, their aim is to bring more art and artist collaborations to the city through networking, showcase opportunities, and a sprinkling of lady power. Over the past year, they have sold out two dance performances and two “fierce grrrls” shows at Bourbon & Branch that featured music and poetry, and have broken into the festival sector by organizing their own summer vendor festival and participating in Philadelphia’s 2nd Street Festival. The women of femme. collective continue to empower each other, support women in the arts, and provide a platform for female artists to collaborate in sharing their passions through the underrated act of talking to oneself at Philadelphia’s Fringe Festival this autumn.
