This Spring, TARRA dove into the value of failure.
Why is failure critical to success? // How can you conquer the fear of failure? // What is it about failure that’s so powerful? // Why is it that we are deathly afraid of failing?
May 10, 2018, we presented “Failures, False Starts & Everything in Between,” an evening Masterclass and Anti-Networking event to benefit Girls, Inc. of Metro Denver
The masterclass explored the value of failure with Amy Savage, one of the nation’s top leadership coaches, who took participants through interactive exercises to break down mental barriers and transform the way you think about failure.
TARRA’s Anti-Networking evening continued with a TARRA x Metta Society at Bar Helix women heard the stories of failure and triumph from 3 Denver-based business leaders followed by a Q&A.
Our evening concluded with an intimate dinner with a menu by celebrated chef Linda Hampsten Fox of The Bindery curated around medicinal herbs that open the mind for clarity, strength, and passion. This dynamic dinner was a unique networking opportunity for leaders in the Denver community to connect on a deeper level.
TARRA2017 | Anti-Networking Night
October 20-21, we celebrated TARRA2017: A 2-day celebration of women, ideas and innovation.
The lineup included events, exhibits and gatherings, with the mission to bring together women who are innovating, transforming, creating, designing, writing, fabricating, building, and thinking outside the box.
TARRA2017 was for those who want to learn, connect, and network with women who are pushing boundaries, creating culture and looking to effect meaningful change in the world.
TARRA, a community for women in the creative industries, and Goldyn, one of Denver’s most sought after women’s boutiques for progressive fashion, partnered together to host a collaborative installation of local photographers and “Women Who Create” as part of Denver’s Month of Photography.
Month of Photography
In an effort to create more collaborative opportunities for women across creative industries, TARRA partnered with Goldyn and Month of Photography to host a collaborative exhibit featuring the works of three ``Women Who Create`` from the local community. We put out a call for entries and received more than 30 application in a week, ultimately making the decision too difficult to narrow down to three.
The TARRA Winter Pop Up, hosted at Queen City General Store, featured the works of eight ``Women Who Create``: Alexa Allen; Lily Schlosser of Eli and Barry; Lisa Rooney of Gossamer; Christin Wingo of Verbena; Erin Pattullo of Mortar and Stone; Jennifer Olson; Alexandra and Koen of Hygge Life; and Shauna Lott of The Long I Pie Shop.
