The Eccentricitas Guild

Eccentricitas is an alternative subculture community network dedicated to the examination of experimental, alternative, or underground music, art, literature, and aesthetics. Eccentricitas endeavors to create and support fair, balanced, and healthy discussion communities that focus on enriching subculture while avoiding the pitfalls of ideological purity, elitism, pendatry, sophistry, and any sort of senseless drama that only serves to divide us rather that bring us together. Though our network primarily focuses on a particular range of subcultures, we are welcoming towards other scenes that have otherwise been overlooked, dismissed, or outright mischaracterized in modern culture. It is important that while building a community where people can feel safe and affirmed we are also willing to challenge ourselves, including through the ways we interact with the larger alternative subculture community.
