ABOUT THE CREATORS: Founded in New York City by Natalie Blacker in 2006, Ladies Lotto is a ﬁnely-cultivated international lifestyle and networking community aimed at developing the professional and personal success of independent women. As a collective, Ladies Lotto shifts the paradigm in the way women work together creatively to build strategies of allegiance and growth through culturally relevant projects and positive social impact campaigns, simple consumerism to create and form emerging cultures, communities, and social beneficiaries. With chapters in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco, and members hailing from Sydney to Paris, Ladies Lotto is a more than just a community but a cultural force.
Slideluck Potshow was founded in the backyard of advertising and editorial photographer Casey Kelbaugh, in 2000. Today, SLPS is a New York-based arts non-profit (501c3) that hosts slideshow potlucks in about 50 cities globally-from São Paulo, to Stockholm to San Francisco. Slideshows are accompanied by music, commentary, or other surprises. Women’s Work takes a model that has been developed and reﬁned over a decade and puts a thoughtful and insightful spotlight on the issues facing women today.
