What are we looking to do with Kinfolk?

With generous support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, we will be scaling up our archive nationally. We are aiming to build 100 monuments and create a community impact plan where we throw events in 10 cities across the country to spread awareness about our Kinfolk platform. Our goal is to turn Kinfolk into a next-generation community archive built for Black, Brown, Indigenous, and LGBTQIA++ communities. We will be adding a geolocation feature to the app and commission work from high-profile artists to feature as signature monuments on our app.

What is Kinfolk?

The vast majority of monuments and historical narratives in the U.S. uplift a euro-centric version of history. The Kinfolk mobile app serves as an interactive archive for underrepresented historical narratives. It features a catalog of augmented reality-enabled monuments depicting women, people of color, and LGBTQIA+ icons. We believe that the key to our society’s preparedness for meaningful steps towards racial equity lies in the undoing of the centuries-long dehumanization process at the core of our country’s collective narratives.
