For nearly 30 years, Tribes has elevated revolutionary voices of traditionally under-represented artists and writers.
Tribes Programs 2020 and Beyond:
Re-launching nonprofit arts programming during the time of COVID-19 has been challenging, but we are doing it with your support.
Artists and writers have felt the fallout from this crisis.
At least 50% of funding raised from this campaign will be distributed to working writers via stipends and commissions to support readings and new creative work by traditionally under-represented artists and writers, elevating the revolitionary voices of our time.
-Tribes Magazine Online publishes poetry, fiction, essays and reviews by diverse authors.
- Tribes readings and events are currently being held via zoom, and provide a platform for traditionally under-represented authors of diversity, pairing emerging with established authors.
Founded by Steve Cannon in 1993, A Gathering of the Tribes (Tribes) is a non-profit, multicultural, cross-disciplinary arts organization, that began as a salon-style art gallery, literaty magazine and small press located in NYC's Lower East Side.
Now, Tribes is moving into a new era, continuing to support supprt diverse authors and artists across disciplines through our online literary magazine (tribes.org), our small press (Fly by Night Press), our semi-annual annual literary journal (Tribes Magazine) and by hosting literary and performance events.
I cannot thank everyone enough for the love and support that has poured out for Steve Cannon and Tribes since his passing last July. I hope that you will remain part of Tribes’ community as we continue to support artists and writers of diversity and excellence for years to come.
