Please join us for drinks and conversation at Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar on Thursday, February 7th, when a portion of the proceeds from all drink sales during the 5:00PM -8:00PM happy hour will go to support Mujeres Malas. So enjoy a drink or two, meet the Mujeres Malas team, and take-in Boheme's bohemian atmosphere!

RSVP on Facebook: HERE!

About Mujeres Malas:
An evolving socially conscious practice, Mujeres Malas grows with collaboration and communal support. Our hands, voices, and resources are dedicated to building connections and examining our demographic’s history to guide us on a path of healing and a future where latinx bodies are respected and liberated.

Mujeres Malas is a multidisciplinary artist collective composed of Natalia Barrientos, Leticia Contreras, Jessica González, Karen Y. Martinez, Moe Penders, and Arely Peña, all artists practicing in various mediums in Houston, Texas and Tarija, Bolivia. In October of 2017, Mujeres Malas debuted with “Lo que me dijeron Was” a performance that critiques societal limitations placed on our members. This performance shared experiences and trauma imposed by machismo, fat-phobia, racism, Mexican hegemony, misogyny, transphobia, and homophobia. In a time when continuous attacks on the latinx community are the norm, Mujeres Malas challenges these mechanisms of oppression collectively.

About Cultured Cocktails:
Cultured Cocktails is a community building fundraiser in celebration of the arts and takes place EVERY Thursday during the 5:00-8:00PM happy hour at Boheme Café & Wine Bar (307 Fairview St.). Each Cultured Cocktails event features a different local artist, arts organization, or arts project. Participating artists and arts groups receive 10% of all drink sales during the 5:00PM -8:00PM happy hour. 

Since its inception in 2008, the program has raised more than $100,000 for hundreds of local artists and arts projects!
Powered by Fresh Arts, the Cultured Cocktails program is generously sponsored by Boheme Cafe & Wine Bar.
