GRL PWR aims to create a platform for a diverse array of artist and creatives, specifically: womyn identified, poc, trans, nonbinary, femme & queer artists.

GRL PWR is more than just a dance party. Originally founded by artist and musician Amy Reid as a response to the lack of womyn/femme DJs represented in the Baltimore music scene, it has since grown into a collective made up of three artists based in Baltimore: Amy Reid, Pangelica and Waqia Kareem.

While we may share with our close circle of friends and family, rarely do we offer those significant moments to our community at large. When we take the time to share in the subtleties of each other’s journey and experience, we become closer as a community, as a world.

Sole Connection offers that opportunity to share personal experiences stemming from something as simple as the shoes on your feet. Help build this archive to at least 5280 “feet” (entries) so that we can truly walk a mile in each other’s shoes.
