AFRINOMENON aims to be a multimedia platform for alternative content inspired by Black experiences in Africa and its diaspora. We envision our platform being a portal that connects young people of African descent and broadens Black imagination and identities.

Ultimately, we want to create a futuristic user interface and experience for our audience to feel seen and engaged in works of fantasy, alternativism, surrealism, etc. in the digital space.

NBPOC-owned, located in Mountain View, Hawaii
I am a human and an artist and all of my work is rooted in decolonization and anti-racism. I have been exploited by white supremacy and white-centering art/fashion industry/communities/shops - you name it. and it’s not a person. It’s white supremacy. My work moves from object making, video, poetry, activism, my garden, community work, facilitating healing experiences, how and what I post on my Instagram. Creativity fuels my survival and because of creativity, I am still alive. As a direct result of white supremacy - opportunities have not only been limited but also not safe. My artwork funds are always redistributed to Black, Brown, and Indigenous people because they are my family, not because I am “doing the right thing”.
I hope this pro bono work is safe and about honoring the work of BIPOC not because of the oppression we face, but because our work is valuable, whole and truth. Thank you for reading this.
I need help with graphic design so that I can bring some of my words to better life so I can make posters + shirts/product to fundraise and build investment towards my community care projects.
Black-owned, located in Chicago, IL
Hrblgy is an apothecary and wellness initiative with a mission to bring wellness back home. We teach self-sustainability, herbalism, and other complementary wellness practices with a focus on BIPOC/LGBTQ+ folx who remain on the margins of axis to care, although our ancestors lie at the root of today's popularized wellness movement itself.
Our website is currently hosted on Squarespace, but it's not visually ready to be released to the public. I had it up for a while, but was unsatisfied with the look, and I don't have the capacity or skill to build it like I'd wish. I need a web designer who can assist with our entire site (home page, two journals, online apothecary (shop), about page, etc.) I started updating it and just need someone to build off of that!

About The Curly Code:

Founded in 2019 by College Access Professional Emmanuella Duroska. The Curly Code LLC was created to act as a guide for college-bound high school students of color encouraging self-love while promoting academic excellence. Our mission is twofold: Affirming textures while increasing student self-awareness of their college trajectory. By empowering young women of color to learn and love their hair for what it is we increase positive self-concept. We strive to empower them to be critical consumers of the college admissions process.
We are a small group of educators that have been funding this organization from our projects. We created some merch to help us raise money for Camp Curly Code, as it is free of cost for students. We need help creating motion graphics for IG posts that can really help us raise money by selling our merch.

About The Dinner Table Doc:
Black-owned, located in Brooklyn, NY
Founded in 2014, the Dinner Table Doc is a 501(c)(3) New York City, non-profit organization that partners with schools and community organizations to provide college and career readiness workshops and programming.
We are currently seeking help to create a culminating video of our events and programs. I think we have a video that does a great job of showcasing who we are as an organization overall but we really need some help making a video (or videos) of the specific programs that we do to attract more schools to our roster of programming and better translate our services to our target demographic. We have a lot of footage from different events to help compliment the final product, but again could really use some help creating a cohesive story and defining how we do what we do and its impact through specific programming. Additionally, we'd like to animate our logo or add some sort of cool motion graphic aspect to it to really make our videos come alive. We've tried using Powtoon but there's only so much you can do.

About Vamo' Arriba:
NBPOC-owned, located in Los Angeles, CA
Hello! We're Sofía Rodríguez-Toymil and Thalía Colón, second-year college students from Puerto Rico and founders of Vamo' Arriba. Vamo' Arriba is a non-profit, student organization that focuses on mutual aid in Latino communities. We started in 2020 and have been focusing on collecting items/donations and sending them abroad to communities in Latin America that have been affected by political/natural disasters. For example, this year we focused on gathering school supplies for children in Puerto Rico whose schools were deemed unsafe after the January earthquakes. However, Vamo' Arriba is not an exclusive platform. We strive to create a safe space for queer BIPOC people, actively seeking to empower and engage with communities that have been historically misrepresented or marginalized in the media, government, and society. Currently, we're a very small team; anything would be appreciated! Thank you!
We're still starting up, so we still need a logo. That's the most inimical thing we're seeking help with. Aside from that, we'll probably need help designing flyers for our events or possible content for our social media page (which is still not up yet).
