We can craft customized ongoing classes in performance and visual arts, media strategy, technical production, and anti-oppression solidarity practices. For example, we teach regular social media classes at KPFA Radio for the First Voice Apprenticeship Program.
We Rise producers are available to facilitate workshops to enhance a group's cultural production strategy and vision, or on a specific topic addressing decolonial and social justice praxis and artistry. As one of our teachers says, the cosmos are the limit. For specific examples, please check out our CV.
For organizations, corporations, collectives, schools, summer camps, and youth, adult, or intergenerational programming, we offer trainings on media production and active solidarity (i.e.: racial justice, gender justice, intersectionality, decolonial theory and practice, and more).
If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time.

Available for group and one-on-one consultations, we can support concept development, media strategy, and creative visioning. We can meet one time, or set up a consultation schedule to best nourish your work.
We Rise offers a three tiered system of payment.
For prices, please contact us directly. We are happy to discuss with you.
TIER 1- Full rates. These are comparable to standard rates for cultural producers and help ensure we can keep roofs over our heads, food in our bellies, and pay our team equitably.
TIER 2 - Discounted rates. If our full pricing is out of reach, we can offer our services at a discounted cost.
TIER 3 - Payment plans, trades, and barters. We are committed to serving our communities. If you cannot afford to pay us, let’s talk about how we can best support each other, our work & our visions.
