#CreateChange Festival makes impact for social change


Back in November, we were excited to take part in the #CreateChangeFestival hosted by our friends at Cause2Create. Spanning over six different locations across Hackney Wick and Fish Island, London, the event included a thought-provoking programme of art & design exhibitions, creative workshops, film & photography, music & performances and talks & debates, all with a focus on using creative skills to make impact for social change.

As well as being an inspiring event to attend, it was also an opportunity to showcase winning work from 2017s Creative Conscience Awards, and what better way to do that than by sending some of our talented winners along to represent Creative Conscience and to speak to people about their impactful work. Thanks to Jacob Sutton, Andrea Rizzotto, Nathan Brown for going along and helping to spread the word of positive change throughout the day – you did us proud.

Had a great day representing Creative Conscience with some other lovely people at the CreateChange event today in Hackney. Let’s go and create some real impact in our world ??? #createchange #creativeconscience #design #socialimpact #winners #london #hackneywick

Our double gold winner, Lottie Fox-Jones, was also invited along to showcase her amazing interactive ‘I raised my hands’ project. The project is a fun activism project which allowed visitors to share what cause they would raise their hand for. Motion sensors recognise the visitor raising their hands and a fan activates a series of 16 inflatable arms to rise around them.

Thankyou so much to everyone who came to @cause2createuk today! And to everyone who came from @creativeconscienceawards ?? sorry it was so cold!
