In October our audience nominated people they believed to be creating a legacy with a creative venture or business idea. Out of many applications, three amazing projects made the shortlist and today is the day we announce our winner.
Over the last month we have had the pleasure of getting to know Sisterhood, KTA and Clean Sheets who all put forward unique, impactful business ideas that would uplift different communities.
Let’s briefly revisit our finalists plans to write their legacy.
Rachita and Rebecca are the dynamic duo behind design-led social enterprise Sisterhood, which is actively pushing gender equality and creative education for the next generation. Rebecca & Rachita run school programs working with girls aged 13-17 on creative social action projects that tackle real life issues such as body image, online safety and street harassment.
With the straightforward brand name Clean Sheets, Iman’s idea is a people first and eco-friendly sourced womenswear line hoping to make it cool to be seen in the same outfit over and over again. Iman believes that anything you do should consider the effect it will have on everyone involved in the process so transparency about the supply chain of their clothing will be at the core of Clean Sheets values.
Lizzy created Skate Streetwear Company KTA to forge a voice for POC and LGBTQI+ communities through skating which Lizzy says is conventionally tailored to white communities. Lizzy aims to cater skating to POC and LGBTQI+ communities by highlighting skaters through a range of mediums as well as creating opportunities for them.
Congratulations to our three amazing finalists for getting this far – it was not an easy decision choosing one winner, who will receive a £5000 grant as well as mentorship that will help them continue to write their legacy.
