Cultural Consulting and Sensitivity Reading
Are you creating content which features ethnicities, cultures, or religions that are not your own? That’s awesome! Representation makes the world a safer, better place for individuals of diverse backgrounds. But you gotta get that representation right—and it’s not easy. A cultural consultant or sensitivity reader works with you during your creative process to ensure that your work not only doesn’t offend, but also supports and validates the people you’re talking about.
As your cultural consultant, I will draw on my lived experience as a multiracial Asian and Hispanic American of Jewish descent; my academic training in West African and Afro-Atlantic religion, East and South Asian religion and classics, and South Asian dance; and my experience in martial arts from the United States, Brazil, Japan, China, and Russia. If I can’t help you based on my own background, I’ll find you someone who can. I work with you at any and every stage of your creative process, from brainstorming to the finished product—although it’s always easier if we start early!
