Many claim to prioritize creatives, but how many at those agencies actually ARE creatives?

They offer "social first" public relations campaigns, but do they even know the first thing about social media?

Meet the Founder

Indya "ICY" Wright - Founder

So, first I want to tell you the most important thing to know about me:

My passions and my mission.

My passion is creating. It is a great source of catharsis for me.

Art + storytelling are going to be my legacy.

(I'm good at both, but we'll get to that)

I also care greatly about my hometown of Washington DC and shining a light on the amazing talent in the thriving urban community that exists here. Check out our new media brand Extra Mumbo

 

My mission is to make it easier for creatives and people of color in entertainment to get the recognition they deserve. I fight for representation in the media, create buzz for underrepresented talent & mobilize the media to amplify issues that directly affect my community.

It requires planning, strategic positioning, building brand awareness and intentional brand image to make the public care about your work. I know because I personally made the pivot from working a traditional job, to transitioning to a CEO.

But the very first step I took was telling my story. That ONE article changed the entire trajectory of my life.

Because of that, I can speak first hand to the immense power of press.

I quickly realized that my gift of storytelling is what created instant opportunity and that it was a second nature passion that did not feel like work. This realization is how Artiste House was born.
