Community Building | Artistic Advocacy | Intentional Marketing
AYE DEFY partners with individuals and collectives to: ask questions and offer solutions that help define and clarify story in order to reach their desired demographic, while simultaneously advocating for equity, inclusion, and empowerment in front of and behind the scenes of theatre, television & film. In accordance with our founding principle of joy as a practice, all of the projects and partnerships we take on will endeavor to highlight best practices for how to function positively in our individual artistic communities as well as the larger local and global communities we are all a part of. AYE DEFY aims to continually ask, "what is the responsibility of the Artist?"; in order to counteract and disrupt the expectation of entertainment solely as consumption. AYE DEFY believes art is an outlet through which we can actively engage with the politics of our bodies, minds, and souls.
