Daughters of Darkness is an organization devoted to dark artistries and small businesses created by women. Each year we host a festival in Salem, MA featuring a huge vendor marketplace, live music and performances, panels and Q & A's, and art shows throughout the town encouraging attendees to support the women-led businesses and learn about women's history in Salem. We have seen a need for resources and support in our time as the organizers of Daughters of Darkness, and are always finding new ways to provide inspiration, motivation, and knowledge. This year, we have added a blog to our website, in hopes that we might be able to share information throughout the year. We hope you will find it illuminating, and we look forward to seeing you in person in April 2021!
Sadly, the in-person Daughters of Darkness festival was canceled due to social distancing. But we didn't let it stop us, we took the event online with #virtualdodfest!
While we missed seeing all of your beautiful faces in person, we are incredibly grateful for your support online during #virtualdodfest. We estimate that our vendors raised over $5000 for HAWC Northshore (Healing Abuse, Working for Change) and that doesn’t even include individual donations of those who made them directly to their organization! We have also heard such wonderful things from the vendors involved, all of whom really needed a boost during this difficult time when all small businesses are losin traction. Your support means the world to us because it will keep us doing what we love. Every year we come away from Daughters of Darkness feeling inspired and motivated, and this year was no exception. Thank you for being a part of it.
You Can Still Support HAWC!
Find out how you can donate or provide help to HAWC Northshore. In a time when people in abusive situations are trapped at home with their abusers under quarantine, it's so important to provide a safe haven to those who need assistance.
Vendors involved in the 2020 #virtualdodfest have been invited to vend in person at the 2021 event, on April 9th, 10th, and 11th 2021. Check out their online shops and Instagram accounts below!
