What is TARRA? TARRA is a global community of women in the creative industries—architects, graphic designers, filmmakers, photographers, fashion designers, advertising executives, makers, creators, artists and artisans—who are innovating and elevating their craft.
Born from an awareness of the gender gap in the creative industries, TARRA’s mission is to give women access to life-changing opportunities for growth by providing the tools, resources, and community to help them build successful businesses and careers.
In 2016, the first annual TARRA summit brought together more than 500 women from the creative community—business leaders, architects, interior designers, graphic designers, makers, artists and artisans. The summit included:
Launch party and panel discussing: “Timeless Innovation: How do we Create Forward-Thinking Design With Staying Power?”
Panelists featured were architect and jewelry designer, Jenny Wu, Ellen Bruss of Ellen Bruss Design, and Elish Warlop of Elish Warlop Design Studio
Film-night at Sie Film Center showing “Making Space: 5 Women Changing the Face of Architecture” with introductory talk from Courtney Loveman, VP and Partner of Crispin Porter + Bogusky
Pop-up shop at Queen City General Store showcasing the creations of Royal Stag Hats, Alexa Allen, Banshee Press, Salihah Moore and Liz Quan.
TARRA2017 is expecting a 25% increase in attendance. We invite you to be part of the conversation!
