Help Reina Project Support Artists & Organizers

With Community support, Reina Project hopes to grow its platform and assist two aspiring queer artists, and an organizer by providing them with the tools, Pop/Political Education, and Resources to build sustainable practices and develop affirming public programming.
These resources will be formed from media, workshops, and tools, That have aided them in developing their own Drag Artistry, and Organizing practice. (You can support here.)
As well as workshops led by established drag artists and organizers on relevant topics and skills. This will come with stipends, and other auxiliary budgets being allocated to support the artists through this 5-month fellowship process.
RP Hopes to create and model an alternative to the competition-based model of developing young Drag Artists, and Organizers.
This opportunity and space will exist as an affirming collaborative incubator for these Artists / Organizers from the period of February 2022, with digital workshops/ relational building, and culminating in an original public Pride offering organized by the fellows, with the support of Themme (Head Organizer / Drag Artist) in June 2022. For a cause of their choosing.

The Reina Project is a DIY / Digital Platform that has been using the power of Queer art, for Mutual aid, Healing, and Education since Spring 2019. Most of this work was made possible through community support and collaborations with “Themme”, an autonomous Drag Organizer and Cultural worker from NYC, as well as the activation of public space for healing programming.
They hope to cultivate understanding and practices of embodied support for the next generation of Drag Artists and Queer organizers. As Well as modeling what is possible through engaging in collaborative relationships of deep accountability and interdependence through mutual aid and reciprocal support.
