INTELLIGENT MISCHIEF is a creative action design lab using culture, narrative and design to hack social change.
Our mission...to boost invention and imagination, realign action logic and experiment with new forms of civil society to create atmospheres of change.
We believe in the power of culture. As humans we are deeply entrenched in cultures that lie in our conscious and subconscious. These cultural experiences inform our identities, communities, & politic, and impact how we see the world. At IM, we curate transformative cultural experiences and interventions that re-imagine the possibilities and shift the "common sense".
As afro-caribbean immigrants, veteran organizers, and creatives/cultural organizers we bring a unique perspective and range of skills to our broader social justice community and social justice values and vision to the creative sphere. We work at the nexus of arts, popular culture, social change and activism. We are particularly committed to working with black and brown communities to offer solutions that are often fenced off from them due to expense or lack of cultural awareness of existing design and creative firms.
We offer narrative, design and creative consulting to organizations, groups, and social ventures looking to use creativity to develop their campaigns, programs, and strategic initiatives. We also experiment with new ways of doing social change by designing our own media projects.
This year we are available to:
1) Facilitate human-centered design processes to develop creative and innovative ideas for your campaigns, strategies, pop culture interventions, creative direct action and more.
2) Speak about the role of design, art, creativity, innovation, counter hegemonic strategies and popular culture in social justice movements.
3) Speak about the development of the Black Body Survival Guide, world-building, science fiction and AfroFuturism.
4) Facilitate customized design sprints/hackathons with your organization or community
