Emily Rumboldt is a young creator and activist based in Reading, England. After using her creative writing as a child to battle trauma surrounding her Alopecia Areata and sexual identity, she now uses art as a platform for activism: and she encourages you to do the same.
THE ARCADIA PROJECT
‘The Arcadia Project’ is a social campaign with a difference. Emily wants to create a loving, supportive community for everybody in the world considered ‘different’ by society, encouraging the people of the internet to use their artwork to promote equality and unity.
“After dealing with so much isolation myself, I know how difficult and degrading life can be for “minorities”. Self-acceptance is hard enough, so to be forced to explore our identities with next to no outside guidance or positive media representation really takes it’s toll. I hope that Arcadia can be a safe platform for people to use their voices: voices which are otherwise muted by society.”
