we are an intersectional production studio and safe space.
We created this space out of the necessity of our own lived experiences as QPOC creatives trying to navigate a system that is not built for us.
"I lasted exactly 2 months as the number 10 employee at start up corporation backed by Y-Combinator before I realized that there was no amount of money and security that would be worth the things to which I'd be complacent. Holyrad is the love child of my hatred of the status quo and my unwavering belief in the Youth, the Future, and the Arts."
“It’s really important to me that I’m creating a sense of community for people of color, for +LGBTQ identifying artists or anyone who’s marginalized in this industry. This concept of safe space within Holyrad requires more than our physical studio, it needs an emotional and mental support system that should always be reflective of our mission.”

“I was told I needed a million dollars to be a successful creative, when all it comes down to is the willingness to share resources, share ideas and share space. No one mentioned the transformative power of having access to a space that fights to showcase all ideas and all talent. No one, no group or corporation, can defy what we achieve at Holyrad, as we strive to keep the creative playing field equal.”
