A CREATOR COLLECTIVE + A COMMUNITY INITIATIVE
THE WIZARD PUNK INITIATIVE
Harry Potter taught me everything I care to know about punk. I found wizard rock when I was eight years old. Its goofy enthusiasm, DIY ethic, and get-your-friends-by-your-side-and-tear-evil-apart heart have been at the core of who I am and what I do ever since.
I started Wizard Punk because I want more people to feel that way: encouraged and empowered to share their art, to work with their peers, to make art about this brilliant, improbable community we live in and live by.
As was the case when I first started working on this thing and as was the case when I launched it, I don't have an end-all-be-all for what this will be. Wizard Punk is new and ever-changing, with lots of moving parts and plenty of room for experiment. Want to stay in the loop? Join the Wizard Punk mailing list.
THE WIZARD PUNK COLLECTIVE
This is a small crew who - through constant conversation, collaboration, and creation - are the driving force behind Wizard Punk.
THE WIZARD PUNK MISSION
MAKE THINGS: Make things we believe in. Make things that illuminate our experiences in ways only we can. Make things about and for our community. Make things together, drawing support and insight from our wizard punk brain trust. Make magic.
CHANGE THINGS: Challenge our community’s notions about creativity and hierarchy. Dismantle the things that stop us from creating on our terms - the glass ceilings, the sanctity of status quo, the voices in our own heads. Disrupt the routines and habits that uphold power myths and breed hesitance.
