If you’re in need of that extra push to get through the week, check out these communities and activities to remind you of your whys:
She Talks Asia
She Talks Asia is where all the important conversations are taking place. She Talks Asia is all about amplifying the voices of women by handing them the mic and giving them a space on the Internet to speak for themselves. They held their very first conference, Every Girl Can, in 2017ー a time when feminism was making huge waves in the media. From there, they’ve strived to encourage more open discourse among Asian women especially on topics like representation, mental health, body image, and so much more.

Open Collab’s Open Sessions
Calling all creators, collaborators, and cultivators of art 🗣
Open Collab’s Open Sessions is the ultimate, remote collaboration event for creatives of all kinds! Each session is focused on a specific theme or topic. Participants are asked to send in their works, either texts or images, and these are randomly combined into an endless stream of compositions by the Open Collab platform.
The participants come from all over the world and are encouraged to learn from and collaborate with one another on their outputs! The final product is usually never what’s expected which makes it stand out from the usual creation process. Overall, it’s a great way to network with other creators while redefining your vision as a creative.
