Free News Projects is an independent publisher working in art and music. Through intense and close collaboration with each of the artists we work with, we strive to build a new paradigm of creativity, freedom and originality in the publishing and music worlds. All of our projects are created with an eye for superb design and intriguing conceptual thought from start to finish. We then take these carefully crafted ideas and work with the best printers and technicians to insure that our standards of printing and production are of the highest quality.
Vaudevillains New Year’s Brigade : visit their site
The “Mummers Parade” is held each New Year’s Day in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Local clubs (usually called “New Years Brigades”) compete in one of four categories (Comics, Fancies, String Bands, and Fancy Brigades). They prepare elaborate costumes and moveable scenery, which take months to complete. This is typcially done in clubhouses, many of which are located on or near 2nd Street (called “Two Street” by some local residents) in South Philadelphia, which also serve as social gathering places for members. The Vaudevillains are a comic brigade under the Murray Comic Club and use Space 1026 as their clubhouse.

Small Change Productions : visit their site
Small Change is a group of filmmakers and [film] lovers that curate and present monthly-ish shows of contemporary experimental film and video art at a range of spaces throughout the city of Philadelphia. We assemble programs of our own and host shows by touring artists and curators. By presenting a healthy mix of independent and experimental cinema at inexpensive screenings in non-traditional all ages venues and contexts, we seek to break down the institutional fencing surrounding much of the film and video art world, or at least hop over it.
