Our monthly gatherings are open to new and interested women creatives, and persons who identify as women. The meeting is a great way to meet the current collective and learn about member programming and how to join Wyld Women.
Instead of filling our piñata with candy, we are asking attendees to donate one good-vibe or self-care item, art supplies, or small trinkets.
