We’re supporting girls and gender expanding youth to design their place in the world. Join us at our events this month.
This year, Sisterhood & Vans are proudly joining forces to support girls and gender expanding youth to design their place in the world. @OURSISTERHOOD offer social action programmes to support young people (13-18) to gain skills, tools and the confidence to become part of the next generation of creative thinkers, leaders and change makers.
Throughout March, we have a series of events running with them as well as other amazing organisations from across Europe with the shared mission of enabling young people to DESIGN THE FUTURE. TOGETHER.
