we're the unknown collective.

the community for connecting online with bipoc creatives + our allies.

we're here because of systemic inequity + well, because bipoc creatives need each other now more than ever.

At the core of every successful community is the opportunity to be seen, heard + supported. We believe in developing a platform that allows creatives + art-repreneurs to work + grow in public, showcase their work + share their expertise.

With our launch of The Unknown Collective, we're doing just that.

the unknown collective was created out of a need to heal from the broken + systemically oppressive world of the arts for black, indigenous + other creatives of color.

historically, these marginalized groups have had to work substantially harder than their non-bipoc counterparts, just for the chance to attain the same opportunities. in most cases however, bipoc creatives never make it through the door, or get that coveted invitation for a seat at the table.


after years of growing disappointment, distrust, and oppression that bipoc creatives have experienced in the midwest, west coast, east coast + globally, we’ve decided to create a safe + equal space for ourselves (as well as our non-bipoc allies who share this desire for equity in the arts). this cyclical lack of opportunities to practice their mediums in healthy + respected ways has caused trauma for bipoc creatives young + old for generations.

we’re breaking that cycle. it starts with us + other communities, organizations, + businesses. people coming together to create new spaces + critical infrastructure to rebuild the system + ensure true equity in opportunity, pay, treatment + overall access.


we see a world with equitable opportunity, access + resource for the creation of art. this is the goal. all people will be able to share their stories, make their art + see themselves represented in the artistic mediums we love + consume daily. we believe we can achieve this beginning with uplifting marginalized groups, while also welcoming allies into this network of creatives. as a collective, we continually strive for the pursuit of equity in creative + artistic spaces to achieve this vision.


our mission is to create safe space for bipoc creatives to thrive + create, without relying on resources or opportunities from those same industries that have failed time + time again to meaningfully include us. to do this, we aim to inspire + facilitate conversation + collaboration among bipoc + non-bipoc creatives, connect critical resources to those creatives + provide thoughtful + enriching programming + initiatives for this community.


the staggering, systemic lack of equal opportunity for bipoc creatives to be seen, heard + valued in the existing creative industries + spaces has inspired us to write this manifesto + build this collective.
