TUFFEST, which took place on July 9th, 2016, was our most ambitious project to date: a celebration of visual art, performance and education with a goal of uplifting, expanding and celebrating the female & non-binary electronic music community through the TUF collective.
This was a two part event, split between day and night. The daytime portion of the festival was funded by a grant from the City of Seattle’s Office of Arts & Culture. It took place in Judkins Park and was free and open to the public to uphold our commitment to accessibility. The park was filled with interactive visual art installations, musical performances, workshops and TUF TALKS -- artists and women in creative industries are spotlighted through panels, interviews or conversational talks. The evening portion featured international, national and local artists performing in a secret event space 'til dawn.
