I started a non-profit called She Factory to present events and shows featuring the talents of women in the arts. The second one will be April 6, 2019 at the Townsend in Austin, Texas. Organizing these shows uses all my skills and is super challenging and rewarding. All money raised goes to a women-centered charity.
The debut of She Factory featured Nina Diaz, Carolyn Wonderland, Jane Ellen Bryant, Suzanna Choffel, Patricia Vonne and Ruthie Foster.
“At this ‘She Factory’ event, ‘The Song Pool’ brings together a variety of women songwriter/performers in an interactive, casual environment to play some of their songs and discuss with both the audience and the other performers, the art of songwriting,” said Kathy Valentine. “She may discuss the specific song, what inspired it or how songwriting in general impacts, narrates or expresses aspects of her life.” – from Austin Monthly.
