Culture Equity Beauty

GANGGANG activates the creative economy to center beauty, equity and culture in cities. We believe that culture brings humanity together and that art challenges mindsets. It is our vision to build new ecosystems that center the care and economic viability of creatives. We do that via programming, advocacy and production. Thank you for considering a collaboration with GANGGANG to make all spaces more vibrant and equitable by way of the creative economy.

Investing in the creative economy

Featured Projects

Much of our work happens within the context of individual, widely varying projects. From massive urban murals to creative consulting for national brands, each new opportunity, internally sparked or via external collaboration, works to provide sustainable equity in the creative economy. We’re always open to collaboration.

Promote, preserve, Produce

    Previously, she was a full-time Graphic Designer for the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. However, her need to invest more into her organic artistic talents motivated her to take a leap of faith and branch out on her own. Now she offers a wider range of her creative services as a freelance designer, a professional artist and muralist, under her newly-founded company, Works By Mimsy LLC.

    To date, a few of her art career highlights include the Indy BLM Street Mural project (2020), the Indianapolis Recorder building mural (2020), Art & Soul event branding (2022), the Goodwill/Cook Medical 38th St. building murals (2022) and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Museum “Sleek: The Art of the Helmet” exhibition. She is also a member of The Eighteen Art Collective, a product of the BLM Street Mural, which includes the 18 black artists who participated in the creation of the mural. Her style is flexible and adapts accordingly, depending on her mood or the content of the piece. Amiah has always had the creative talent, but has only tapped into it with intention as of late. Learning to utilize her abilities to their full capacity has been an empowering journey and will continue to be.
