Madeline Howie is a 7 year San Francisco resident & Hayes Valley neighbor since 2019. An Artivist Artrepreneur, also known by her burlesque persona RedBone, began to investigate her radial impact upon our most recent uprising. She found hvna.org and began the investigations. Since then Madeline has volunteered with Shared Spaces, Hayes Valley Art Works. With a deeply rooted family history in SF, she has a passion for San Francisco's historic culture of enmeshed Art, Nightlife, & Social Justice.

In the wake of our most recent uprising, a few of us Black Bay Area Burlesque Entertainers came together in various forms of artivism.
From the debut of this Black Pussy Power, we were able to pay all 6 artists & 2 assistants $200 each. As the video came into demand we then donated $200 to the African American Arts & Culture Complex and seeded a BIPOC Baylesque Fund with $200 (which now holds over $1400) that was then invested in stocks.
These efforts have goals of working towards something resembling generational wealth within our BIPOC Burlesque Community.
Most Recent, #cycloneenterprises had the pleasure of being part of Mayor @londonbreed #glitterati Black Excellence New New Year’s Eve at @saintjosephsartsfoundation what a joy and honor it is to meet and work with @martinluthermccoy @msryannicole @omegarae @thejazzthug @kevchoice @veronica_blair_aerialist And more!
