Indie ~ free from external control and constraint
Guild ~ association of artists in a specific activity
Founded in June 2010, IndieGuild has calmly established itself as a highly polished showcase and eclectic listening post for the best of independent music, video and art, exalting the direct spirit of communion between artist and public and deliberately disregarding the standard charts, competitions and vote exchanges that all too often do no more than to reduce creative talent to yet another banal object of commerce and speculation.
Convinced of the extraordinary wealth of creativity in the independent arena and well aware of the myopic tendency of the mass media to concentrate its attention almost exclusively on the usual known names, IndieGuild has moved ahead with quiet determination, pointing on quality rather than quantity, using its own website, online streaming and television to give visibility and airplay to a carefully chosen assortment of young (and less young) newcomers, long-time professionals, and independent idealists.
Strictly no-profit, IndieGuild is free for everybody: artists, listeners and viewers.
