We Are FreeBird
We are a new online intersectional feminist network. A catalyst for change in the arts and creative industries. A platform promoting inclusivity, diversity and equality by connecting like-minded professionals through articles, interviews, and brand features.
We are ambitious! We want to empower women and girls to become leaders in the professional sphere. We’re engaging with collaborators from all corners of the arts and creative industries. And we’re producing content which uplifts and promotes women intellectually and creatively– highlighting our ability to be leaders and game changers.
Our founding team were brought together by a shared experience of misogyny in a creative business environment, and telling those stories gave us the confidence to reach out to others and widen that conversation. We want to highlight those already doing an amazing job in their fields, while giving emerging artists and creative entrepreneurs the encouragement and inspiration to forge their own paths.
Whether you’re a platform member, a collaborator, or a new visitor– welcome! This is your home for discussing powerful topics, with a focus on on sustainability, self-determination and inclusivity. Join us in expanding the limits of your ambitions. Be a free bird.
