A newsletter and podcast series are among Rave Scout Cookies' early offerings.
Rave Scout Cookies comes from Salman Jaberi, who also works with the Visceral party crew in Boston. So far, the website consists of a newsletter and a mix series, though the plan for it is to become a five-pronged platform.
"RSC's five media outlets are a newsletter, podcast series, digital events, check-in app, and a third-party booking agency and networking app," Jaberi told RA. "The RSC bi-monthly newsletter will illuminate a variety of topics such as POC/LGBTQ+ rave heritage and genealogy, drug harm reduction [and also feature] the vulnerable intellection behind every talent, raver and platform making notable contributions to their scenes and communities."
"There are a few life-transforming raves—some of us look forward and have the privilege of attending every year, such as Honcho Campout, Whole United, Sustain-Release, etc," Jaberi adds. "RSC's central layer and mission is to provide the less-privileged members of our community a metamorphic digital experience and space where they can network, showcase their talent and, more importantly, feel heard."
The name is a reference to the Boys & Girls Scout Club of America, which was originally founded as a whites-only organization, whereas Rave Scout Cookies is meant to be all-inclusive and uplift marginalized people.
