Free visual notes for racial justice

Are you part of a nonprofit working for racial justice, or an organization owned by a person of color? If so, your organization is eligible to receive up to a day pro-bono virtual visual notes.

The Ink Factory team is committed to continue supporting this initiative. Since the lauch of this pro-bono program in 2020, we’ve donated over $74,000 worth of visual note-taking services to 15 organizations. Learn more about some of them here.

Our waitlist fills up quickly! We accept applications on a rolling basis and will reach out to you if we have availability to support your event.

Visual notes help you tell your story, achieve your goals, and inspire others to get involved.


You’ve got big goals–and the road to achieving them isn’t straightforward. Visuals help you present your ideas in a way that’s concise and easy-to-understand for everyone.



Keeping teams aligned is essential to accomplishing your goals. Visual notes become a central reference–anyone can look at them, and at a glance, know what’s been discussed.



Seeing your content brought to life through live drawing inspires your audience to learn more, take action, and get invested in your organization.

“We discussed very complex, dynamic issues and the visuals were beautifully illustrated.”

Jose Rico, Truth, Racial Healing and Transformation Chicago


Who's Eligible?

Organizations owned by people of color or nonprofits that fight for racial justice are eligible for up to one full day of visual note-taking based on availability.

We are currently only offering virtual visual note-taking services for virtual events like webinars, meetings, remote conferences, and so on as part of this program.

This offering does not extend to our illustration, video, or workshop services

How it Works

An artist connects to your virtual event 30 minutes prior to the start of the first session, and you’ll be able to stream their notes as they are drawn live (or, you can share the visual notes after the event as a recap).

Free services are subject to availability. If we don’t have availability on the day of your event, we would love to talk about what future events we can support. The more lead time you can give us, the more likely it is that we’ll be able to support your event.



Examples of our work


Some of our past participants


Client Spotlight

We worked with Gregory Tall to create hand-drawn visual notes for one of his virtual workshops on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

“The real work is in the conversations they have after the workshop, and the visual notes really facilitate that. They’re a big value add from my perspective.”
