We are A Conspiracy of Strange Girls, an arts collective dedicated to the genesis and promotion of creative work by, for and about Strange Girls. Our collective is open to all women, femme-identifying, non-binary or genderqueer people creating art dealing with the unusual, the unfamiliar or the mysterious. With over eighty members across a diverse spectrum of identities, we believe in building community, uplifting marginalized voices and showcasing creative work by folx who have historically been overlooked by patriarchal power structures embedded within the ‘art world’.
Strange Girls is a values-based arts organization. As such, we offer art events, fundraisers and skillshares that benefit our network of co-conspirators while raising awareness of social justice issues important to us. By supporting each other artistically and building relationships within a diverse community, we create greater visibility for our artists and work toward inclusiveness for all forms of ‘otherness’. We prioritize racial equity by acknowledging our privilege and utilizing our collective skill sets to hold space for BIPOC and GLBTQ+ voices in all of our organizing efforts.
There are currently two tiers of CSG membership; active and inactive.
