#BlackGirlMagic: Why Tiffany LaTrice is our WCW.
Have you ever had the desire to quit everything, pick up your things and run towards your dreams?
Tiffany LaTrice Williams did. In 2016, Tiffany founded TILA Studios, a co-working space for creative women focused on developing art. TILA Studios provides women with a safe space to create ambitious art projects, receive professional development and art management services, as well as exhibition opportunities through the company’s on-site gallery. Tiffany’s company is more than just a side project – it’s her heart and soul. It’s her calling.
Tiffany created TILA Studios when she realized that one of the most critical components of pursuing art as a profession is that you need to have your peers and community to critique your work and also have a network that understands your practice to help you get access to institutions. She had neither of these and after a series of failed attempts and rejection she decided to build a more inclusive art industry for women.
Tiffany wants women creatives to know that she sees them, that she wants them to succeed in their artistic practice and that she is willing to go on the journey with them. She wants women to know that an art career is possible and feasible for the world, and that women artists are here. Women artists have been here. Women artists are staying and plan to shift the art world so it can be more inclusive.
