Join NATIVE and special co-host ROAR for the next night of Show and Tell, a monthly speaking series that features some of Nashville’s finest creatives. Join us April 26th at WeWork Downtown for a night of conversation, food, drink, and inspiration with:
Shannon Ware and Melody Jennings Bowers
Jennings Bowers and Ware know data. After founding Virtual Collective, a company that brought together virtual teams to provide clients with digital services, they realized people either didn’t understand or value data. With that, Her Data Method was born, and Ware and Jennings Bowers will provide female business owners with the data collection skills that help businesses excel in our increasingly digital world.
Lindsey C. Langley (Lynclair)
Lindsey, a.k.a. Lynclair, is a community organizer and activist in her adopted neighborhood of Katie Hill. Lynclair helps her neighbors with basic necessities like school supplies and gifts during the holiday season, but also tackles daunting issues like gentrification, affordable housing, and gender equality. She created Project NENA in 2015 to give a voice to the Northeast Nashville community.
Maria “Poni” Silver
The Recipient of the 2016 Rising Star award, it hasn’t taken Silver long to climb the ranks of Nashville’s fashion scene. The Dominican-American designer launched her first line in 2011 and subsequently had her work showcased in four consecutive Nashville Fashion Week runway shows. She is also the founder of Found Object Records.
Sunny Becks and Fiona Flaherty
For almost exactly two years, the mother-daughter duo of Becks and Flaherty have been bringing color to Nashville’s ever-growing event scene. Located in Harlan Ruby in East Nashville—which was featured in Issue 69 of NATIVE—Vroom Vroom Balloon has become Nashville’s go-to purveyor of the unlikely (but Instagram-ready) party favors.
