BRAND IDENTITY | EVENT PLANNING | CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT
Tribal Affairs, a community based and social justice organization focused on collaborating with local and national organizations in order to establish a difference in how the arts can be used as a tool to advocate for social good. Teaming up with universities, high schools and other organizations, Tribal Affairs provided events, workshops and grants used to advocate each community's communal goals and achievements.
TRIBAL AFFAIRS EVENT
Tribal Affairs, introduced through an event that hosted over 250 art enthusiasts to an art exhibit, fashion show and culinary tasting while promoting the message 'By Students, For Students' in a one night six hour event. Art majors from around the Washington D.C. metropolitan area had the opportunity to display their works of art, all of whom were able to apply for a grant in support of their future artistic endeavors. Businesses such as iStrategy Labs, Utrecht Art Supplies and The Awesome Foundation sponsored this event and helped donate towards grants awarded.
EMRACE YOUR RACE CAMPAIGN
High schools, universities and community based organizations participated in programs to gather statistics on diversity within their communities. Embrace Your Race was inspired by the misunderstanding of one's identity. Government and job applications require individuals to check off their race by choosing one or more of the following: Caucasian, African American, Asian, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, or Other. This t-shirt mimics those applications by allowing the user to interact with 60+ nationalities and state their identity with pride. This project allowed individuals to not have misconceptions about the identity of others. Ultimately this campaign was focused on uniting communities not by their similarities but rather by their differences.
