“Some artists paint with pastels, I paint with people”
I am a social designer, entrepreneur, and yoga teacher based in my hometown of Cincinnati, OH. My personal and professional platform is grounded in holistic community development, meaning that I intentionally/carefully aim to help build communities from the inside-out while seamlessly weaving together wellness, justice, and urban planning advocacy. A storyteller at the core, my unique ability to connect themes, concepts, and ideas allows me to:
*Connect people to each other in relevant ways
*Develop strategies that help connect individuals and organizations to themselves and audiences/others
*Extract meaning that simplifies complex systems
*Bring life to “civic art” that articulate stories in ways that resonate with people’s souls
I have been nationally recognized by the American Institute of Architects as a Design Justice Advocate and by Next City as a 2018 Vanguard Fellow. I am co-founder of Voices in the Built Environment, Heal ‘n Build, and founder Bike & Green-Cincinnati. You can find me dismantling white supremacy and the powers that be through leading civic initiatives , teaching yoga, riding bikes, building parks and spreading awareness of the built environment, serving on advisory committees, and things in between. J.C. Humphries, LLC is a strategic communications and engagement firm to help community members connect with others.
