Codify Art is a Brooklyn based collective of multidisciplinary artists.
Our mission is to create, produce, and showcase work that foregrounds the voices of people of color, particularly those of women and queer people of color.

We move and make on a platform of diversity dedicated to effecting positive change in the arts and beyond. We invite you to:
