Initiate Studios is a creative programming and design outreach start-up studio developed to facilitate collaborative crossroads of dialogue and action for community building through human-centered visioning, development and mentoring.
The Imprints Project is a reflective body of work, activities and programming that illustrates how our actions live on. The intent is to elicit and amplify thoughts of influence that have been imprinted on you and that you imprint in others both knowingly and by chance. It is a think piece encouraging the viewer to reflect on moments and people that caused change within them and their lives, remember how it made them feel and resolve to move with intention through current and future interactions with others. The Imprints Project is the start of a thought hoping to continue into a space, in both mind and form, to be intentional in life by way of inclusion, inspiration and ingenious.
