WONDER WOMEN OF LOS ANGELES UNITE!
Wonder Women was created by Toronto-based singer-songwriter, and event producer, Arlene Paculan, of LMG Productions, to showcase female artists and raise funds and awareness for female-driven associations. While on a trip to Los Angeles, Paculan met artist and activist April Snow. Inspired by the movement, Snow began working with Paculan to bring Wonder Women to Los Angeles. According to Paculan:
“I believe that women need to have a stronger voice out there, especially in the music industry. There need to be more female musicians out there playing instruments, and performing killer solos! Wonder Women is an event made to encourage individuals to tap into their creative side and share it with the world. I believe we all have something to share artistically, and the more that we create, the more we feed the world with our talents and impact others to do the same.”
The aims of Wonder Women are to spread empowerment and positive self-esteem to women through art, to inspire creativity and collaboration between women, and to create a supportive environment & community for women in the arts.
“I’ve always felt that women should lift each other up, but the entertainment industry instills such a competitive nature in us that it can feel like we’re enemies.” says Snow, a recording artist with Lookin’ for Trouble blues band, and recent Blues Hall of Fame inductee. “I see this as the opportunity to be a part of something that helps fellow female artists. I want to show talented women that there is room for us all. Together we are even more powerful, and able to create an even bigger impact. I believe that Wonder Women is the glue that will bind us together.”
The Los Angeles incarnation of the movement begins Sunday, 7 September 2014 at the Arcadia Blues Club at 4pm. Tickets cost between $10 and $15.
The lineup includes sets of original music by both April Snow and Arlene Paculan, as well as musicians Julia Othmer, Color Me Home, Whitaker and Me, Leah Hanna King, and Niambi Sims. They will be joined by local poets and C. R. Cohen, Ariel Maccarone, and Chelsea Bayouth, and comedienne Kara Kimbrough. The backdrop for the event will be pieces from local female artists, including Tami Bahat, and Marcy Ferro (Mixed Media Girl).
