2016 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Chaska will curate a bimonthly, live-streamed, music event showcasing queer and trans DJs and musicians from Philadelphia and beyond. Using dance, beats, and sound as a language of collective healing, Chaska will create alternative spaces where gender nonconforming, queer, and trans people can celebrate themselves and their survival. These events will promote, uplift, and honor the work of contemporary queer and trans artists in the Philadelphia music scene, and will be archived and viewable online as a form of queer cultural preservation.
