Art & Soul (incorporating Alternative Fashion Fest) is a community project aimed at celebrating diversity, positive body image and social inclusion, and combatting bullying, hate crime and intolerence across the UK.
We are a community of creative professionals with a passion for creating social change. We want to see everybody celebrated for being who they are, regardless of size, shape, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, race, ability or lifestyle choice.
Our projects include Alternative Fashion Fest, a high impact fashion, entertainment and music event showcasing a multitude of styles and talents, all with a strong anti bullying and diversity message, and our School and community projects aimed at engaging local youngsters and adults to be socially accountable and aware of the issues facing us all on a daily basis.
We also promote creative entrepreneurs in local communities with their business ideas, from fashion designers and photographers to dancers and poets.
Every member of Art & Soul is encouraged to either donate £1 from every product sold to one of our nominated charities, or where a service is offered to donate hours towards one of our social projects as part of their membership so that we can develop a community of socially aware individuals and businesses supporting each other to develop & build local economy while promoting important social messages.
We are looking to raise funds for our 2017 projects.
Thank you very much.
