HOW TO BECOME AN IN VISIBLE INK CURATOR

History should be a collection of many voices and opinions to accurately depict a moment in time from all angles.  Through In Visible Ink, we can contribute to correcting the bias representation of minorities in our history, highlighting the parts of the system we need to change and providing a platform to voice alternative views.

Our aim is to call out biases and make sure more than one perspective can challenge the accepted narrative. We need your help to build our story, from the grassroots up, and with expertise across disciplines: from artists and writers, filmmakers, academics, lawyers and most importantly, you. We use tools that everyone can access, bright pink, green and yellow highlighters and post it notes to annotate bias sources and draw attention to what’s being made invisible.

Our brand toolkit is intended as a community resources to visually shine a light on these stories, making this vision a reality.

Use highlighters and post-it notes to tell a story or identify and shine a spotlight on untold stories of race and prejudice, negative and positive. We want to encourage conversations about the impact of these stories, on individuals and communities.  To explore how they can play a role in reducing systemic discrimination in our society.

If you have a story about an experience of racial invisibility or visibility, or come across a piece of material, no matter what it is, a news article, a quote, a statistic, an advertisement, a piece of legislation, a photograph that has more of a story to tell, we want to see it.

Write it down, take a photo, scan or photocopy the piece, mark it up with a pen or post it and describe with a short statement, the significance of the text.  Or send it to us and we will annotate it for you.

Email your work to us at s.hughes@mftwa.org.au, direct message or share it on instagram tagging @in_visible_ink and with the hashtag #invisibleink, and make sure you credit your sources.

We will repost it with your credit as an In Visible Ink curator, or anonymously, based on your preference.

Communities are at the heart of our brand. And just like the people who live in our communities, our brand changes and grows with them. Built from human annotations and a collection of bright colours and textures, our visuals aim to symbolise the act of individuals coming together to not only review the past, but also uncover and celebrate justice along the way.

To help tell the truth, heal and reconcile.
