AYE DEFY partners with individuals, collectives & institutions to: ask questions & offer solutions that help define & clarify stories in order to reach their desired demographic, while simultaneously advocating for equity, inclusion & empowerment in front of & behind the scenes of theatre, television & film.
AYE DEFY continually asks, "What is the responsibility of the Artist?"; in order to counteract & 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 in community with others.
Using the tools of Positive Psychology in accordance with our founding principle of joy as a practice, the partnerships we take on will highlight best practices for how to function authentically in our individual artistic communities, as well as the larger local & global communities we are all a part of.
