8 October 2020

Adobe has launched Create Change, a new series of discussions with creators from a spectrum of disciplines who share how their creativity empowers and inspires them to make an impact on the world.

The first episode features a conversation between Lena Waithe and Zerina Akers in a 9:24 video:

Waithe is an Emmy Award winning writer, producer and actor for The Chi, Queen & Slim, Twenties and Master of None. Akers is a costume designer for projects including Beyonce's Black is King and founder of Black Owned Everything.

They discuss Black representation in the fashion industry, share their experiences as Black female creators and how they are using creativity to make an impact in today's world.

Adobe plans eight episodes to be released weekly.

Adobe Launches Create Change: Conversations with Creators

Creativity has the power to create change in the world. It's what unites us, inspires us and helps us cope. But creativity needs to be more accessible to and celebrated by, every one of us. Now more than ever, it's crucial that the next generation sees creators like themselves reflected in society.

At Adobe, we are committed to giving diverse voices a greater platform to share their stories, so that more perspectives and cultures can be seen and understood by everyone.

That's why we are launching a new conversational series called Create Change, bringing diverse creators together from a spectrum of disciplines to share how they're using creativity to feel empowered, inspired and make an impact through their work.

Create Change will feature a variety of creators, from photographers and filmmakers to stylists and chefs -- including Lena Waithe (Emmy Award-winning writer, creator, producer and actor), Zerina Akers (costume designer and founder of Black Owned Everything), Yara Shahidi (actress, producer and change agent) Destinee Ross-Sutton (art curator, advisor and artist advocate) and Cleo Wade (poet and author) -- so that everyone can be inspired, learn and share in their creativity.

We're excited to have original artwork and graphics for the series created by talented photographer, graphic designer and Adobe creative resident alumni, Temi Coker.

Create Change will leave viewers with the inspiration they need to create their story, whatever that may be. We hope you'll join us for the first of eight episodes premiering Oct. 8. Tune in weekly.

At Adobe, we are excited to be supporting, elevating and amplifying diverse voices. This month we launched a new chapter in our campaign celebrating the vibrant spectrum of perspectives from creators all around the world, featuring the work of Black creators such as Laci Jordan, JD Barnes and Kriss Munsya.
