OUR MISSION
 

Family Banned Records was founded in 2019 with a mission to support and empower aspiring artists and use creativity as a voice for positive social change.  

 

We sponsor and invest in music acts on the Family Banned label and host shows/events through our Dead Flow It Society series and Create With ME interactive art shows.

 

With each the goal is the same:  to inspire new (and old!) artists to challenge their creative and personal potential and connect community through poetry and art.
