The Drag Academy is a collective of local drag performers. The Academy is designed to elevate Drag as an artform. Members of the collective share their expertise in immersive courses. The course is designed for those with zero experience with drag to those who have been in the industry for years.
A collective is a group of individuals who work together on a common project without relying on internal hierarchies. Collectives can be large or small. They might exist temporarily or over long periods, and membership in them is voluntary.
At Drag Academy we believe that leadership happens naturally and fluidly. All skills and knowledge are shared. Duties and responsibilities are rotated among the artists at the Drag Academy, and that they can be revoked if anyone starts abusing their power. Our horizontal structure is a dynamic and vital way to increase member-empowerment.
At Drag Academy we embrace a modern leadership style where a group of people works together toward a shared goal using the diverse talents, perspectives, and skills of the collective members to contribute to success.
In Drag Academy, there is shared responsibility and decision making, accountability, and authentic engagement. All members are involved in creating the vision and are committed to working to achieve that vision. Everyone can and should lead and teach.
