Ladyfest Philadelphia

Ladyfest Philly is an activism, music, and arts festival that happened in Philly from June 7-9, 2013. We donated a couple of kegs and bottles of our cold-brewed coffee Pure Black to support the event. In 2003, Philadelphia hosted its first and only Ladyfest. Ten years later, they thought it was time to do it again. Ladyfest combats substantive, cultural, and structural inequalities by building upon the existing Philadelphia community of artists, musicians, and activists. It aims to foster a more inclusive and safe environment through performances, workshops, panels, opportunities for collaboration, and more.

The proceeds from Ladyfest which came to over $7,000 was split between the following 2 organizations: Women in Transition and Project SAFE.

The first Ladyfest took place in Olympia, Washington in August 2000. Since then, hundreds of iterations of the festival have happened across the globe. No two events look the same — each responds to the needs of its particular community and time.

DC-based photographer Bora Chung documented the weekend for Ladyfest Philadelphia, as well as Rosie Richeson.
