The I'm Tired Project

The “I’m Tired” Project utilizes photography, the human body and written words as a tools highlight the lasting impact of everyday micro-aggressions, assumptions & stereotypes and pull back the layers of discrimination to reveal thoughts and feelings that aren’t usually voiced through fear of backlash and lack of being relatable.

Co-creators Paula Akpan and Harriet Evans use Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram to share participant's photos. Since its inception in July 2015, the UK-based project has effectively initiated a social debate around daily prejudices faced by people from all walks of life.


We want to remind people that we are more than what you might ascertain at first glance. 
So look again.

Create your own "I'm Tired" statement and photo.

Participants share what they are most tired of, which is displayed across their bare back (or hand) creating a positive space for people to share their personal stories. Photos remain anonymous providing a safe and honest platform to be both vulnerable and empowered.
