Hope has also worked to curate collections that spotlight Indigenous creators, such as Moonshot vol. 1 & vol. 2 for AH Comics. In addition, she guided the creation of the Margaret Atwood comic series Angel Catbird for Dark Horse, advising Ms. Atwood on the process of comics creation, pairing her with collaborators Johnnie Christmas and Tamra Bonvillain, forming a deal with Dark Horse Comics, and assisting in marketing and promotion of the finished books.

To help the Winnipeg community access comics as easily as any of those in larger cities, Hope helped create the Prairie Comics Festival and the Winnipeg Geek Girls Social Club.
