Om Boom
BOOM! är en kvinnoseparatistisk glasgrupp med målet att stärka framtidens glasscen. De vill fungera som en feministisk plattform, där även andra kvinnliga utövare inom glaskonsthantverket kan dela kunskap och erfarenheter, för att på så vis ge varandra styrka.
Om Spasjy
Den mobila glasstudion Spajsy är en ombyggd släpvagn med en specialbyggd smältugn. Spajsy är ett resultat av projektet Empowerment (egenmakt) som står för systerskap, självkänsla och självförtroende. Med Spajsy förmedlar BOOM! sin kunskap, i synnerhet till unga tjejer. Genom glasblåsning, samtal och prova på-verksamhet vill BOOM! stärka ungas självförtroende och tro på sig själva.
