York Design Week

“You never change anything by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the old model obsolete.” Buckminster Fuller

This week, we have the pleasure of speaking at York Design Week. I (Mandy) was born in York and grew up on the coast of Scarborough, 40 minutes away. I regularly visit York to see my family and it has a very special place in my heart. It is a joy to be asked to be part of this. So many incredible things are happening in the programme, check it out here: https://www.yorkdesignweek.com/

Much needed in these times of challenges, York Design Week are bringing together change makers, pioneers, activists and creatives all doing what they can to fight for a better world.

For me to be engaged creatively I need to feel something, and film and music has the ability to generate that emotional response I need.
