  • “Sharing your stories helps other people feel seen and heard,” says Robin Thede (@robinthede), creator of @ablackladysketchshow (pictured right).⁣

“I came up with the name ‘The Black Lady Sketch Show’ when I created the series because I didn’t want there to be any confusion about what people were watching,” says Robin. “Then we changed it to ‘A Black Lady Sketch Show’ so that we didn’t single ourselves out as the only one. That simple change to “A” means that we’re one of possibly many black lady sketch shows, which would be a dream come true!”⁣

The best part of #ABLSS for Robin? “Working with all these amazing black women,” she says. “Writers, our director, our cast, our guest stars… and of course, (pictured left) Issa Rae (@issarae).” #ShareBlackStories

“When I put on the hijab for the first time, there was this overwhelming sense of strength and purpose, like maybe I’m doing this for something bigger than me,” says Noor, who made a personal choice to start wearing the hijab at the age of 15. “The thing that people told me was going to keep me down and hold me back was actually what allowed me to connect with people in a way that they had never felt seen or heard before.” 🎤✨⁣

  • In her dreamscapes, Australian artist Tanya Schultz, better known as Pip & Pop (@pipnpop), uses an abundance of sweet and sparkly materials — including sugar! “Sugar is a beautiful material to work with,  says Tanya.  It's sparkly and soft. It’s also the perfect medium to hold color, which is so intrinsic to my work.”⁣

  • “These ‘slime drips’ are my mood ring and the mixing of them afterward is my stress relief,” says Amanda Tanner (@muck.muds). “Using slime as a medium allows me to create multidimensional art and then destroy it and there’s something oddly poetic about that.”⁣
