So what is this PROJECT INK you keep seeing everywhere?
Project Ink is a program designed for Young creatives (and any aged volunteers) to learn the ins and outs to designing and printing garments for prospective paying clients and to showcase artworks via OWLKEYME’s platforms.
There are several roles within project ink and OWLKEYME likes to give everyone a fair chance to learn all the elements and encourages participants to work within their comfort zones after stepping out of them.
From computer programs to physically printing, peeling and pressing garments. There are many skills to be learnt.
The sessions are organised organically as clients request orders and attendance is organised by availability.
The participants take the clients’ project ideas and turns them into a printed product. Understanding how to operate printing equipment is essential to properly completing assignments, the participants are trained how to safely use the equipment and work within a team environment. The ability to delegate and prioritize assignments is also crucial to maximize efficiency.
Witnessing participants completing orders from start to finish is beyond rewarding.
