For The Birds Collective

For the Birds Collective is an NYC – based collaborative group of female-identified people dedicated to challenging social inequality through DIY feminist cultural activism. With backgrounds in social justice organizing and various artistic pursuits, our objective is to promote the creative interests of gender-oppressed community members.

We recognize the importance of collaboration, shared knowledge, self-expression, and meaningful engagement in order to facilitate a sustainable community. We seek to combat transphobia, sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, and other oppressions of marginalized groups, to connect struggles, and to reflect on our own privileges. We emphasize the need for accessibility, safer spaces, and support within our communities.

As a collective, our collaborative website, event curation, feminist zine and music distro, enable us to engage with a feminist network. We have written our own zine, entitled So You Want to Start a Feminist Collective, to answer questions about our collective process, encourage others to start their own collectives, and share the knowledge we’ve gained together. The collective has hosted an annual all-day feminist multimedia event known as the Big She-Bang and a summer event series, Birds of Summer. In addition, throughout the year we organize events like skill-shares, discussions, workshops, social networking events, art and music shows. We produce a bi-monthly feminist event newsletter and blog, and engage in internal group processing and self-care. We are constantly looking for new ways to meet the needs of our communities.
