Indya "ICY" Wright - Founder
My mission is to make it easier for creatives, impactful projects and people of color 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 the media.
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.
