COMING SOON! Designers Against AIDS!!!

Coming soon from Fish and Chips HQ!!!
We are excited to announce that Steffi Tisson, a representative from the organisation Designers Against AIDS, will be jetting in from Belgium to host a presentation as part of the 'Fish and Chips, Twice Please?!' accompanying programme!
Commencing on July 19th we will be hosting an array of features promoting AIDS/HIV awareness ranging from craft workshops for kids in co-operation with JEF, live knitting circles, special DAA film screening and of course our much anticipated presentation. Our knitting and craft workshops offer kids and passers by the opportunity to contribute a square to add to a special patchwork we are creating to raise AIDS/HIV awareness which will be given to Designers Against AIDS upon completion.
DAA was founded in Belgium, and the internationally active project aims to reach young people through the media of fashion, celebrity, music and sport. Their initiative and work has been injected into worldwide media and has been featured in publications including; Vogue, i-D, ELLE, Cosmopolitan and Vanity Fair.
Previous contributors and collaborations include H&M, Rihanna, Gareth Pugh, Bernhard Willhelm, Katy Perry and Jeremy Scott.
One of their biggest projects to date is the international HIV/AIDS Awareness Education Centre in Antwerp which invites qualified students to learn about the programmes and techniques that have made DAA so successful in reaching young people through pop media and internet culture.
On Monday 19th July we will be hosting the presentation in the freiraum quartier21 INTERNATIONAL starting at 6pm, entry is FREE! Come along to learn all about how fashion is used to promote awareness and hear all about their projects such as Knitting Against AIDS and Models Against AIDS!
See you there!
Team Fish and Chips
