As a response to the hostility and turmoil surrounding Brexit, Birdsong have collaborated with creative project ‘Still European’, and XXY Magazine – a cultural platform focused on marginalised voices. Together we have launched a limited edition range of locally embroidered t-shirts, zine and panel event.
The campaign and launch event are intended as an exploration of community, nuance behind the concept of ‘Europe’, and positive recognition of migrant workers, during the Brexit era.
Speakers confirmed are Nahir de la Silva from the Latin American Women’s Rights Service, pink protest activist Grace Campbell, and founder of cultural platform Amaliah, Nafisa Bakkar. The event will be chaired by XXY editor Tahmina Begum. Tickets are available to buy here.
Modelled by our friends and activists from @routeswomen, @bloodygoodperiod, @lemonade_hq, @pomegranate.hq, @jutashoes and more.
