Event description

Description

The “I’m Tired” Project utilizes photography, the human body and written words as a tools highlight the lasting impact of everyday micro-aggressions, assumptions & stereotypes and pull back the layers of discrimination to reveal thoughts and feelings that aren’t usually voiced through fear of backlash and lack of being relatable.

Co-creators Paula Akpan and Harriet Evans use Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram to share photos of what participants are most tired of, which is displayed across their bare backs creating a positive space for people to share their personal stories. Participants remain anonymous providing a safe and honest platform to be both vulnerable and empowered.

The I’m Tired Project is set to begin on 13th November at Creatives Garage with a photo shoot highlighting what you’re tired of. Paula and Harriet will host four workshops for the next two days,each day having two workshops (14th and 15th). There will be an exhibition launch on 17th November, where we will revel in the photos of our backs highlighting the micro aggressions we’re tired of. Come and join us on what will definitely be an unforgettable experience :)
