Community Bread is a livestream + resource platform connecting audiences with queer + marginalized artists who have lost their gigs in the wake of the global pandemic.
Community Bread features streamers from all over the globe and links them directly with audiences so that they can receive donations to offset economic hardship. CB welcomes all types of content creators such as DJs, performers, and instructors. Together we can safely remain connected while supporting our communities remotely.
We also provide a directory of resources that can aid with financial assistance and job opportunities.
A native NYC DJ, event producer and curator, Arthur began his journey into the underground music scene through Brooklyn’s lawless DIY spaces nearly a decade ago. Focusing on creating collaborative platforms for queer artists, he has launched events like ZODIACK, an integrated music, performance and visual experience, along with the most recent series AGENDA - a queercentric techno party with rosters of notable local and international talent. You can find him front left at events like The Carry Nation, The Bunker and Black Hole, all of which have influenced his sound.
Angela fell in love with rave at the underground industrial music stage at the Detroit Electronic Music Festival. By day she is a UX Designer, Technologist, and Co-Founder of the Brooklyn XR Studio Spa Theory. By night she is a live visualist who has thrown projections for events at NYC venues such as MoMA PS1, Palisades, Trans-Pecos, and Santo's Party House. Mostly, she prefers to fade into the dance floor. She hopes we will host a virtual reality stream in the near future.
Paul got his start in media as a 15 year-old raver in his hometown of Canberra, Australia. He would sneak out and dance all night to touring Detroit Techno DJs, writing about it afterwards for the local street press. Now based in NYC, Paul's worked as a Creative Director for The Face, Out Mag, Milk Studios, brands such as Nike and H&M and personalities such as Grimes, Charlottes Gainsbourg and Laverne Cox. He has a soft spot for indie publishing and is obsessed with Drexciya and Law and Order SVU.
