Creative Babes Experiments

Creative Babes is all about getting a little weird, trying out things no one else is really doing, making a positive impact on our city, and working in what I like to think is our primary “medium” - community. More notable experiments…

Babes Unplugged — Babes Unplugged is a challenge we hosted - a week without social media. We hosted a handful of events (like friend speed dating at the library, a morning coffee walk) and each day our participants were given a challenge. We had over 200 women participate and engage with the challenge!

Inspired Project — This project was one of our first experiments. We partnered with CMA, and babes were put into groups to do a bit of “homework.” Each group was given a piece of artwork to study at the museum, and were then instructed to create a collaborative piece of art inspired by the original piece. We showcased our work and held an event at CMA in celebration, along with blog post interviews talking through the creative process with each team.

CRIS Mural Painting — We partner up with amazing artists when we can to create public art in the city. This piece was developed by Lauren Carter Best + we contributed our elbow grease.
