Rhythm Conspiracy Productions
An Artist and Worker Owned Cooperative Enterprise
Become a member owner of RHYTHM CONSPIRACY
Are you an artist looking for representation? Looking for a Publicist, booking agent, marketer, merchandiser, project coordination ... sales, distribution .... Let Rhythm Conspiracy handle the nuts and bolts so you can focus on your art and music.
Rhythm Conspiracy is now forming as an artist and worker owned cooperative business.
Join us as an Artist Owner or as a Worker Owner and put your talents and knowledge to the benefit of you, your family and your community .... not some outside corporate interest that siphons out of New Orleans.
We're about to start planning our crowdfunding campaign to raise the capital to make RHYTHM CONSPIRACY our nation's preeminent arts music cultural cooperative. We're looking for artists from visual to performing as well as those working in PR, marketing, business and community development to assist in the development and launch of both our membership and crowdfunding campaign.
We're also looking for 4 people to be our 1st cohort of Community Development Through Music, Rhythm Conspiracy's workforce development program.
RHYTHM CONSPIRACY is presently being formed as a multi-stakeholder cooperative enterprise, owned and operated by Producers and Workers. We are putting together our steering committee now and looking for artists, musicians, culture bearers, organizers and activists who are committed to changing the paradigm of our region's cultural economy from one that leaves too many talented people poorly compensated to one where we can work together to build greater individual, family and community wealth through jobs with ownership.

OWN THE CHANGE ~ Building Economic Democracy Through Worker Owned
GRITtv has teamed up with TESA (the Toolbox for Education & Social Action) to make a short "how-to" video for people curious about co-ops. Own the Change: Building Economic Democracy One Worker Co-Op At a Time is the exciting result of that work!
A Producer Cooperative provides PR, marketing, sales and distribution of the products and servies of its producer owners. Some examples of well known producer cooperatives are Ocean Spray, Land 'O' Lakes and Cabot Creamery that market and sell the products of small family farms that own the cooperative. The Associated Press is also a producer cooperative owned by media and newspaper groups.
RHYTHM CONSPIRACY is being formed as a producer cooperative in music, arts and culture and owned by those producing the creative cultural products and services of the New Orleans region.
A worker cooperative is owned and managed by its workers. Worker cooperatives operate in every sector of business, from service to retail, to healthcare, skilled trades, manufacturing and engineering to technology, education, media and the arts. Rhythm Conspiracy worker owners will provide the support services for producer member owners. Those services will include PR, marketing and booking; audience development; project management; merchandising, sales and distribution. There will also be overlap between producers and workers. For instance writers and visual artists, photographers and others may provide services such as the production of digital press kits for performers and entertainers. In other words, if we all work together, then together we rise. Instead of competing with each other we can cooperate and collaborate more effectively. ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL!
RHYTHM CONSPIRACY will be owned by both producers and workers. By working together as a multi-stakeholder cooperative business we can begin to build fair trade pratices in our region's creative cultural economy and provide stable jobs and careers with ownership for all.
