2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Catherine Pancake will commission three queer female musicians to compose music for their feature film Queer Genius that features visionary queer artists. Music composing for film has an extremely low presence of women, particularly queer, African American and trans women. The composed music will be presented in a live performance, followed by an open discussion with the artists. Catherine will hold a free workshop for queer/POC/women around creative sound design and composition for film. The live performance and workshop will be held at the Rotunda in West Philadelphia.
