About This Event
We saw an exponential rise in activism in 2020 – across multiple causes. As online activism grows and standing for something matters more than ever, we wanted to delve into what activism is, and how to be authentic in your activism.
We are aware that some people are uncomfortable with the word ‘activist’ – so will explore our (communal) relationship with the ‘title’ too.
We have a brilliant expert panel of activists across the fashion, beauty and modelling industries who will share their stories and expertise on the subject with you.
