Membership in Gamma Xi Phi
Membership is by invitation only.
Gamma Xi Phi is an all-gender professional fraternity welcoming artists and arts-serving professionals through professional and collegiate chapters.
The type of artist who receives an invitation to join our organization typically has the following characteristics:
- High achievement in their craft or field
- Demonstrated commitment to social justice and anti-racism
- Interest in uplifting and mentoring other artists
- Dedication to the growth of the fraternity
- Deep community connections
- Desire for community through timeless fraternal values
- Embraces art forms and artists historically rejected or ignored by Euro-centric arts conventions
Potential members of Gamma Xi Phi reject racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other prejudices which stifle the arts and hamper the advancement of humanity.
I want to push myself further while also being involved in something bigger than myself.
As I add Gamma Xi Phi to my plate, I hope to gain a strong network of artists committed to social justice, liberation, and critical consciousness-building, in communities of color to collaborate and grow with.

It is possible to join Gamma Xi Phi via collegiate chapters and through professional chapters.

Additionally, artists living in rural, remote, or international areas may be eligible for at-large membership.
Collegiate membership is available to students and advisors attending colleges and universities that agree to host a chapter. Potential members of collegiate chapters may download and distribute the Membership and Expansion Prospectus.
Potential members of established professional chapters may contact the chapter’s Program Director or Membership Director for membership information.
Those interested in chartering a new professional chapter should review the Membership and Expansion Prospectus and then contact the National Executive Director.
At-Large and International Membership
Artists and arts-serving professionals living in rural, remote, or international areas should download and review the Membership and Expansion Prospectus, and then contact the National Executive Director for next steps.
Gamma Xi Phi appreciates your support of our public activities and delights in building relationships with fellow artists and arts-serving professionals. Membership is an honor received by invitation and is not an entitlement. Deliberation on membership matters is confidential to the Brothers and Sisters of the fraternity.
