Jennifer’s a designer and she’s starting a couple of very exciting projects this year! She’s looking to do an exhibition for some of her illustrations and also a pop up shop where she takes photos of people, doodles on those photos with kind or empowering words and gives it back to that person.

Francis is our AWESOME photographer. Like seriously, he’s really talented. And he’s started a thing. Once every month you can recommend a friend to get a free portrait session with him, and they can use those photos wherever they like. Just message him on Instagram and why you’re nominating your person - it can be whatever reason except “they’re just really good looking”. Direct message him on Instagram!
Chris is our friend the poet, who read his poetry for us on Friday morning. He’s doing a thing called Free Show February, where he’ll perform for free in February - as long as you can get him there! Get in touch on Instagram.
