DFP was created as an arts and entertainment resource for the creative community in Austin. Working with makers, musicians, and creative solopreneurs, DFP acts as a guide for crafting professional practices. DFP offers one-on-one consulting, workshops, and organizational tools that empower artists across disciplines with the information needed to maintain and grow their businesses.
In 2016, DFP participated in the annual East Austin Studio Tour with the exhibition, High Craft Art Market, and has since hosted four iterations of the event. The show bridges the worlds of fine art and fine craft while showcasing Austin's contemporary female makers.
The overall goal of DFP is to empower Austin's creative businesses through education and to provide opportunities to be seen and patronized by the community.
HIGH-CRAFT is an interactive art market showcasing contemporary female artists and makers from the Austin community. HIGH-CRAFT highlights craftsmanship across media, and bridges the worlds of fine art and fine craft.
