feature: highlighting microaggressions and stereotypes – the ‘i’m tired’ photo project

August 10, 2015

Check out the ‘I’m Tired’ project. The on-going photo project was created by Paula Akpan and Harriet Evans in June, and aims to highlight “the significance and lasting impact of everyday microaggressions and stereotypes” (as mentioned on the project’s Tumblr page). In regards to the project, which involves uploading one or two images per weeks, its creators state the following: “It may seem upon first glance that we have not represented every single form of discrimination: but do not fear, we intend to represent as many of you as possible throughout this project […] We created this project because we wanted to do something positive, and perhaps help make a change. We are aware that this project is not perfect, but we are absolutely doing our best. We want this to be a positive space where you can tell your stories either by participating or just commenting.” Check out some of the project below.
