Who are we?
Highlighter is a Non-Profit organisation to educate and empower emerging Intersectional people of marginalised genders in the Creative Industry. To highlight is to “attract attention to, or emphasise something important;” thus Highlighter is about ‘highlighting’ the talents and achievements of the most marginalised people, as well as providing them with the support system to succeed. A highlighter like it’s namesake will be a ‘tool’ for Intersectional people; to decolonise, network and create.
What do we stand for?
We envision a world where Intersectional creatives have the same opportunities as non-marginalised people; where their identity is no longer an obstacle in their journey to personal and creative success.
Highlighter will be centred around three core principles: Inclusivity: Diversity beyond tokenism. Transparency: Ethical production and consumption. Empowerment: equipping Intersectional creatives with the tools for self-autonomy.
Highlighter’s Mission Statement is to educate and empower emerging Intersectional people of marginalised genders in the Creative Economy.
Highlighter is focused on having Intersectional creatives excel to fulfil their maximum potential, whether that is an Intersectional student fresh out of university, or someone with no prior creative experience. We are here to support you on your journey through the creative industry.
Our main team will be located between Paris and London, however as Highlighter is a digital platform, our goal is to make our tools accessible to all places, people and backgrounds.
Accessibility is one of the key pillars of Highlighter, it is pivotal to us that the site and it’s tools are as democratic as possible. If any profit occurs, they will go directly to charity, or to benefit the creators of said projects and collaboration.
