Wondaland Arts Society

We at Wondaland are inventors of Love. Sex. Wisdom. Magic. and Wonder. These things add up to something new and ancient that we call WISM. WISM makes us feel good. We believe truth can be broken down with the following formula: Truth = Love x Imagination. We survive off the funk as radical and rebellious storytellers in music, tv, film, fashion, design, art, literature, and more.

Fem the Future

We provide young women and girls with the resources and support they need to overcome the challenges associated with growing up in under-resourced communities of color.  We expand the world of opportunities by supporting and creating after-school and summer enrichment activities that increase exposure and access to a variety of careers.  In an effort to impact as many women and girls as possible, we also provide grant opportunities to organizations that are providing access to arts, music and leadership development-centric pedagogies to help uphold the important work they are already doing.
