RIZE Entertainment covers the thoughts, feelings, traditions, and beliefs birthed from art, entertainment, and culture

Art includes: Visual art, such as ceramics, drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, design, crafts, photography, and even tattoo artists. Art produced by digital means like animation, film, and graphic design as well. Fashion would fit here as well. 

Entertainment is described as: Any type of public performance, amusement, or distraction. Music but we are also looking for entertainment in every other form— performance art like aerialists, dance, theatre, spoken word, etc. As well as festivals, concerts, and even video games.

Culture is described as: Culture covers the customs,  traditions, values, social institutions, and achievements of a particular nation, people, or other social groups. Within each form of art and entertainment, there is a cultural identity. Art has always been a reflection of the world that we live in. Artists are constantly making political statements about their views in their art. Take this into consideration when pitching and account for popular culture, consumer culture, ethnicity, and counterculture views. 

All of this is pretty broad and each intersects. We are talking about cultural identity, changes in direction, or movements happening within an art form. This also gives us the opportunity to talk about political current events, nationality, sexuality, ethnicity, gender, social class, and ability in ways that intersect with culture, art, and entertainment. 

  • Cannabis – An important section within our Culture coverage

Cannabis reporting is no longer niche to High Times. Cannabis has been part of art and entertainment culture since far before it was ever legalized so it is only right that as the culture grows that RIZE is part of that progress. Product reviews will be reserved for companies willing to advertise with us but feel free to pitch stories about the changing world in relation to cannabis— politically, economically, relative to race relations and arrests/incarceration, charity, beauty etc.
