Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: the photography community was starting to feel like a popularity contest and not everyone had a lunch table to sit at where they felt welcomed and comfortable.
We became concerned by the lack of support, quality education and encouragement of each person’s unique creative journey.
As artists ourselves, we know the indisputable link between great art and free and open self-expression. We couldn’t stand how many vibrant voices were being stifled because they didn’t feel like they had access to a safe space to explore themselves and inspire their creativity.
We started Unraveled Academy to create an alternative.
By creating an inclusive and nurturing community, jam-packed with educational and inspirational experiences, we provide students and teachers the opportunity to sit side-by-side and learn from, support and inspire one another. There is no hierarchy, only good questions and equal passion. By providing edgy courses, networking opportunities, and constant, hands-on interaction, we’re able to provide a higher-quality, more vibrant opportunity for artists to become masters of their own unique, creative journeys… not a version of someone else’s.
We believe education should be accessible to all. We offer a cost-friendly membership so no artist looking for high value courses and community support gets left behind.
Most importantly, we believe in the power of the misfits, outliers and underdogs to create art that will change the world.
Whoever you are, wherever you are—you’ve got a seat at our table. We hope you’ll join us.
Our community is made up of creatives. We are doers, thinkers, dreamers, welcomers. From experts to beginners, we’re in this together.
