Create-Make-Music: The Landfill Harmonic Orchestra




  The Landfill Harmonic is a short film about a community of musicians creating instruments and music out of disposed objects.  This documentation highlights industrious creativity, marginalised communities, and the global language of music.

  Our is world over-consuming, our human population is constantly growing, inequalities continue yet art fosters our hearts to overcome obstacles and create change and influence alternatives.

"You have to have style." -Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele



 "I like to play,"  confesses Stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele.  In this clip she explains her hate for runway and trends but her love for tracksuits.
 
 Some style wisdom:  "Chic is not money. You have to have style."

 Let's run with that!  X

"The point is that justice was always going to elude Trayvon Martin, not because the system failed, but because it worked. Martin died and Zimmerman walked because our entire political and legal foundations were built on an ideology of settler colonialism—an ideology in which the protection of white property rights was always sacrosanct; predators and threats to those privileges were almost always black, brown, and red; and where the very purpose of police power was to discipline, monitor, and contain populations rendered a threat to white property and privilege. This has been the legal standard for African Americans and other racialized groups in the U.S. long before ALEC or the NRA came into being. We were rendered property in slavery, and a threat to property in freedom. And during the brief moment in the 1860s and ‘70s, when former slaves participated in democracy, held political offices, and insisted on the rights of citizenship, it was a well-armed (white) citizenry that overthrew democratically-elected governments in the South, assassinated black political leaders, stripped African-Americans of virtually all citizenship rights (the franchise, the right of habeas corpus, right of free speech and assembly, etc.), and turned an entire people into predators."-Robin D.G.

For Animal-Lovers: Human-Stray Dog Documentary in Chile




 This is for animal-lovers.  This is a short documentary that spreads messages of love.  Two chilean students highlight human-stray dog relations in their urban landscapes.  

Be Kind to the Earth and Buy #Vintage

That's what we thought.  Since we were little girls - - we raided our sister's closests, bought second hand clothes from Evanston's ESCAA sales, created our own style, and now continue to buy vintage clothing that ends up lasting forever (which means our closet space has grown!)

 But now and again, you bring friends and resources together and start a pop-up shop.   And this is what we did.  For the month of July . . . Cape Town's finest pizza meets the best of 60s and 70s vintage clothing.
