MISSION STATEMENT: We the People of Philadelphia, in order to form a more perfect community, do ordain and establish this the constitution of Phreak N Queer Arts & Music Festival!
Article I Section 1: We believe in the inherently political nature of art, music and performance as powerful social and cultural change agents.
Section 2: We believe in the strength and resiliency of queer, transgender and ally communities and aim to highlight the efforts of these artists.
Section 3: We believe in paying homage to the fierce history and legacy that Philadelphia queer and transgender pioneers forged so that we could organize proudly today.
Section 4: We believe in showcasing the voices of underground, marginalized, oppressed and radical artists as a way to challenge ideas, politics and boundaries and open up communication where differences and silence previously existed.
Article II Section 1: Phreak N Queer is a product of many identities, experiences and communities. We believe in the beauty that lies within intersecting identities and strongly encourages dialogue, cooperation and community building/bridging using art and music as a channel for communication.
Section 2: Phreak N Queer operates under the DIY/indie initiative and will work to create safe spaces for both the performers and audience members free from alienation and ostracism. Our aim is to highlight queer and transgender artists with messages relevant to our mission and community.
Section 3: Phreak N Queer is volunteer run and all profits from events will go directly to performing artists and supporting the festival.
