Project Inkblot

Meet Project Inkblot:

Project Inkblot is an experiential agency that leverages a rich network of divers​​e perspectives​ ​to design experiences, build communities and create media that shift perceptions and inspire action​.

 

Their Passion:

We're on a mission to ensure typically underrepresented people, for example, women and people of color - are represented in powerful and authentic ways through mass media. Often, including diverse voices, perspectives and images are an afterthought for companies, organizations and media makers. We believe it's challenging to aspire to greatness when you don't see yourself authentically represented. We believe all people deserve to be seen and heard and that a myriad of voices and perspectives have the power to create empathy and connection.

What is Project Inkblot currently working on?: 

Created in response to the recent shootings of A​lton Sterling and Philando Castile,​ Fit the Description

​is a video interview series examining the relationship between black male civilians of varying ages, educational and occupational backgrounds and black male police officers, both active and retired.

 

The intention is to create an authentic and vulnerable dialogue between both civilians and officers and transform how these two groups (often framed as opposing sides) see and relate to one another. Our intention is to create media that will contribute to mending these communities, as opposed to increasing the divide.

Shot as conversations between pairs of civilians and officers, Fit the Description​ focuses on both communities, highlighting the​ personal experiences of civilians interacting with police officers and stories of police officers navigating both their race and occupation.​ Fit the Description​ will feature six 6 - 9 minute video interviews for digital distribution with community sponsored screenings throughout the country. 

How You Can Help:  

Right now we're looking to solidify funding so any connections to art and activism grants or other funding streams would be so helpful for us! ​We're also looking to partner with arts, community and media organizations to host screenings across the country. Thanks for your support!
