About Us

Ur Internet Friends was launched in August 2019 as a multimedia platform by and for all traditionally marginalized creatives worldwide, based in Detroit MI. Our mission is to highlight the art and voices of other emerging traditionally marginalized artists in cyberspace and print media. 

UIF is an optiMize funded project through their 2020 Social Innovation Challenge and fellowship at the University of Michigan. optiMize is a constantly evolving attempt to help students turn ideas into impact through a 13-week incubator program for students of all ages and majors to develop self-directed social impact projects and the ability to pitch for grant funding and join their Summer Fellowship, like UIF.
