WHAT WE DO
Dusky Projects produces horror and sci-fi works in audio, immersive theater, and short films for adult and young adult audiences. Our work and services focus on inclusive storytelling and equity through the production and celebration of BIPOC artists.
Black Women Are Scary is a radio-dramatic podcast that celebrates and produces short horror stories by BIPOC authors.
Dusky Projects is proud to have been a part of audio production for the incredible anthology Imagine 2200: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors, where writers from across the globe engage their imaginations in discovering intersectional worlds of generational healing and community-based solutions. The anthology brings new perspectives to the vital genre of climate fiction, with short stories that offer visions of abundance, adaptation, reform, and hope.
