Lady Brain Presents founder and festival co-organizer Lindsay White shared her motivation behind the festival and the Lady Brain Collective in general. “Our members are all about taking action to create opportunities where they don’t normally exist. Since male-fronted acts routinely get the lion’s share of festival bookings, we brought forth a festival that challenges those norms while celebrating intersectional Lady Brain talent that is inclusive of a range of ages, cultures, sexualities, and music genres.”

Lady Brain Presents is the public iteration of Lady Brain Collective, a local collaborative whose vision is to reject the notion that womxn-identifying artists must compete or hoard information in order to succeed in their respective fields. Lady Brain Collective believes that women are excellent at building communities, celebrating creativity, sparking inspiration, and taking care of each other. Based on the foundation of service, members openly and willingly offer their unique skills, knowledge, ideas, and talents to their fellow sisters in order to develop creative and collaborative opportunities for each other, thereby transforming the definition of what it means to be a successful artist. Lady Brain Collective supports each other through community gatherings such as Lady Brain Fest, members-only meet-ups, shared resources and online support, member-generated press, and more.
