Cultivating artistic experiences through communication

I am Jalondra Jackson, a culture writer and communications professional. One of the motto’s I live by is, “if art didn’t exist where would we be?” This expression manifests itself throughout my portfolio, as I strive to connect the dots between the visual arts and communication. Over the course of my professional career, I aim to spark a dialogue about the ways in which the arts can (and has) contributed to our advancement as humans, the way we think, and act. In my efforts to create this dialogue, I’ve utilized this passion to bring awareness to minority artists, and esoteric artistic concepts.

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Mass Media Arts (minor in BusinessAdministration) from Clark Atlanta University. During my tenure, I served as the Director of Digital Operations for the CAU Panther Newspaper, EditorialWriter and Digital Strategist for Her Campus CAU, and the Vice President ofBroadcast for the National Association of Black Journalist, CAU chapter. In addition to, I interned at agencies like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC), Library of Congress, Abike Studio, and the Atlanta Voice to enhance my understanding and skillset related to communications. My experiences have offered me opportunities to assert my motto, manage teams, and collaborate with others to assist in building powerful, contemporary strategies for various agencies.
