  • Getting Sh*t Done - November 2018
    Getting Sh*t Done - November 2018Our second event had four 'In Conversation' style talks intertwined with performances and opportunities for attendees to take the mic to share what they're doing to create a difference. It was sooo beautiful to create something with such amazing people involved. The theme of getting sh*t done was covered by all 4 speakers who had so much to say - they've done so much �In the 2 years since this event, we've continued to witness everyone go from strength to strength. Thanks to all who made it
  • Our first event - April 2018
    Our first event - April 2018DON'T SLEEP ON US started out as a fun space to celebrate women of colour creating a difference. Whilst this has since evolved to celebrate all people, the format and vibe has remained the same. It's coming up to 3 years since this first event (whewww), and we'd like to thank everyone who took part and attended, from the exhibition artists to the DJ to the people who came alone. ❤️❤️❤️ DJ: TSHA (Teisha Matthews) Exhibition: We Are Here UK Photographer: Poetic Aaron Videographer: Gerald Onyan
