The Syndicate

The Syndicate is a womyn-led project that celebrates the Black experience, Queer folx, and creatives. We curate spaces for those who are seeking community in the desert, a desert that has a Black population of less than 3% and has limited to no spaces for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) who are gender non-conforming and/or LGBTQ+. The Syndicate’s events range from large-scale installations that highlight the power of rest, social gatherings that encourage people to form bonds through shared culture, and QTPOC closed spaces to grow community.
