Making Art Shaping Society Conference Day 2 ft. Curran Nault
Join us for Feminist Action Project and Queer & Trans Alliance’s 2018 joint conference, “Making Art, Shaping Society!” We hope for this conference to encompass community building and a imagine new ways to engage with feminist, queer, and trans identites. The conference will begin with Art After Dark, a resource fair and performance given by the Tiarra Girls on the evening of March 30 (RSVP at tiny.cc/artafterdark), and will continue with a day full of workshops + a session by keynote speaker Curran Nault on Saturday, March 31. Through an interactive/performative presentation that will spotlight the work of contemporary intersectional/transfeminist performance artists, Nault will discuss his work as a local art-activist spacemaker and founder of the OUTsider queer transmedia arts festival.

Austin, Texas' Tiarra Girls have been gigging steadily since SXSW 2012 and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The teenage trio made up of the three Baltierra sisters (Tori, Tiffany & Sophia) proudly perform all their own instruments and started out playing covers from Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Corrine Bailey Rae, Cyndi Lauper, Black Keys as well as Selena, Juanes and many more.
Fast forward a few years and the result is a sonic melting pot of the girls' musical influences rolled into their own unique brand of alternative rock that is undeniably influenced by their strong family bond.
The Tiarra Girls’ new EP, produced by award-winning Austin producer AJ Vallejo, is a shining example of what is yet to come.
