The "I'm Tired" Project aims to highlight the micro-aggressions, assumptions and discriminations faced by the different people that make up our world; offering a social media platform to those who want to speak out. Bringing together the powerful forms of written word and photography, we want to spark debate and discussion as well as possibly educating along the way.

We've received a great deal of support and want to continue with our work with the project and expand. In February 2016, we will be artists-in-residence at The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in New York with our work being exhibited to the public. Additionally, we hope to host our own small exhibition by the end of the year and we are currently in talks to hold workshops in universities and schools in the UK.

We require funding in order to travel and finance our exhibitions and workshops; there are so many more people we'd like to reach and more we hope to do with the project which is unfortunately restricted by our lack of available funds. Therefore, as we step into a new year, we would love for anyone who has felt able to relate to the messages on the page to think about donating to our work and pledging as much as you're able to spare.
