MISSION

Femmecult is an organization that is concerned with giving a voice to groups that are under represented in pop culture. This includes people who call themselves feminist, LGBTQIA and more. As it’s not uncommon for political movements that require radical cultural change and consciousness raising to be accused of being trivial and unnecessary (because it’s easier or tempting to dismiss them, rather than consider their validity), there needs to be spaces where these unique voices can be heard. Regardless of how you personally identify, I hope you agree that a consciousness evolution needs to take place if we are able to assess the inherent value of each valid (non-biased, non-bigoted, etc.) perspective.

With this project initiative, it is my goal to bring awareness to the artists who may fly under the radar because of the exclusionary commercialism of the entertainment industry and the tendency of this (male-dominated) industry to exclude the promotion of individuals or groups that it considers hard to sell, or not worth selling to the public. In light of the fact that cognitive bias exists (where social perception is subjective instead of objective), it oftentimes takes radical action to change things and bring enlightenment to the inherent ignorance that comes with bias. I feel that facilitating the promotion of artists who may fall through the cracks created by cognitive bias can help bring important work to light, that have little outlet to be seen or heard.

With this repository, I have begun the process of documenting artists who have been working in disciplines related to digital arts and culture, including music, visual art, writing, performance, and promotion of the arts, among others. It is my goal to bring greater diversity to this blog, and to continue to document artists and cultural commentators who might find themselves in the minority because of how they identify. I hope that whoever stumbles upon this blog understands the worth of having such a space, and experiences the content on this site with the intention of elevating and expanding their own consciousness. The content on this site is produced on a volunteer basis by someone with almost 20 years experience as a female electronic music composer and performer. Thank you for reading this, and I hope you enjoy Femmecult!
