Mission Statement

Our goal is simple: to create a nonprofit music, travel and creative lifestyle magazine that serves first and foremost to put our Creatives first. To inspire our readers through curated content, to share the word about music, art, events, places, small businesses and lifestyle entrepreneurs who build unique, noteworthy and amazing things. And to create a resource supporting our community of creators and contributors first and foremost – in education, support, networking, legal and licensing and career development. We value transparency, education, philanthropy and doing the right thing.

dRiFFt is in the Visioning stage, launching initial information about the pending nonprofit and our platform strategy. We are currently building a team and accepting team applications for interested creative contributors. We expect to launch our initial page Sept 1 and by October 1, we will launch the full magazine supporting published content. We will be canvassing for contributors in late 2021. By 2022, we will launch the nonprofit, and associated creative support programs, such as:

  • Legal resources: licensing agreements, release forms, legal contracts, etc
  • Platform for publication and application for larger press/media approvals for our photojournalists and bloggers
  • Educational resources for our creative contributors
  • A monthly digest of curated content to our readership
  • A donations platform, the majority of which will go toward creative grants (more TBA)
  • Creative promotion and marketing for our contributors
