Call for collaboration: Gift of Colour

By 06-01-2021

Claudy Jongstra: “Our maker’s-activism initiative ‘Gift of Colour’ has officially begun to take root in Amsterdam’s Nelson Mandela Park. The project looks to collaborate with a fashion brand that is interested in recalibrating the future of their company to a different kind of pace and forging a sustainable working future for their brand.”

“Is your brand ready to start this process by developing a site-specific capsule collection for Amsterdam Zuidoost? As the project’s first collaborating brand, you will pioneer an innovative approach to urban development in which fashion plays a pivotal role in building sustainable and resilient communities for future generations.”

“Founded on the pillars of ecology, inclusivity, hope and a local-maker industry, the Amsterdam Zuidoost collaboration will develop foundational tools for scaling and adapting the Gift of Colour project to other cities around the world.”

A leader must also tend his garden; he too, plants seeds, and then watches, cultivates, and harvests the results. Like the gardener, a leader must take responsibility for what he cultivates – Nelson Mandela
