We’re always busy at the Ideas Foundation, whether it’s with our own Projects, getting involved in supporting others in the creative industry, or working with Government. Whatever it takes to promote practical creativity. Take a look at what we’ve been up to recently, below.

Come down to the Department Store, Brixton, SW9 8FR, this weekend, Saturday 28th, 2pm - 4pm, to see artwork created by students at IF projects throughout the year!

Summer is almost over, and many of you are gearing up for your first year of college or university. It's not easy to choose a subject; it's like choosing a profession! 📚📆

When you've figured out what you like to do in general and can envision yourself doing it for the next three years! Then that is a possible path for you.💭📝

Advice from a film student Zainab kabia @zainab__kabia
- Always do your research. Watch interviews or speak with people who are currently enrolled in the course you are considering.

- Consider the skills you possess or the experiences you've had that could lead to a profession.

- After studying business in college, I went to SAE University to pursue film production this career chose was chosen because I participated in a media summer programme led by Ideas Foundation and Canon. Film production was a chosen course after the media summer camp mostly because of the experience I acquired from talented filmmakers like Clive @cliveboothphoto who shared their narrative and inspired me to follow in their footsteps.

Here are 3️⃣ more recommendations for selecting a course.🙇‍♀️📖

MY HAIR. MY CROWN 👑
“Our idea took inspiration from United Nation’s sustainable development goals number ten; to reduce inequality with our identity as young British creatives who come from various backgrounds to create an image of power & pride, in both what brings us together and what sets us apart. Our Hair is our Identity. Our Hair is Our Own. Our Hair is our Jewels.

Through merging our identities as young British creatives and the difference we possess, highlighted by the texture of our hair, we wanted to make a statement. The silhouette theme was drawn from the Queen’s profile on the back of British money and used our hair as our crown. We used props like combs and hair picks to demonstrate the time and dedication put into the appearance of different types of hair but also to enhance the respect and care we have for our hair. The expression of each model gives a strong presence, emulating that we are powerful individuals united by our background and the flag under which we are born.

In this we say OUR HAIR IS OUR CROWN and OUR COUNTRY IS OUR IDENTITY.”

STEALING BEAUTY 🌹
“Microaggression. This is a subtle display of usually unintentional discrimination against minorities. This has negatively affected black people for generations, and some individuals from our group are recipients of this.

One common form of microaggression is hair touching. Our video effectively demonstrates the effect this has. The model is the central focus with rose petals in her hair which indicates beauty and delicacy. The hands encircling her conveys how invasive touching is which is emphasised by the uncomfortable look plastered on the models face.

Our message is that hair touching not only steals personal space, but it steals voices, dignity, and power. As often we can’t say NO! The hashtag “hands-off” re-claims that power and the title “stealing beauty” perfectly aligns with our main objectives and themes.”

IT’S JUST HAIR
“Our group intended on representing and tackling inequality between the variety of different hair textures, colors, and styles within different races.
For our prints we aimed at creating an editorial-style aesthetic, presenting images of different models with their own unique hair in different sections of the print.
Our video aims to represent the mass population by displaying lots of different hairstyles, showing the contrast between them, emphasizing that people should not be discriminated against based on their hair, “It’s Just Hair”.”
