Building a better world is an art.

We’ve partnered with The Lester Prize, a national portraiture competition with a belief in human understanding over vacuous fashion (we love that).

The Lester Prize is one of Australia’s foremost portraiture prizes, awarded to artists who produce distinguished works that capture the meaning of ‘them’, ‘me’, and ‘us’. This ambition really aligns with our own belief that when individuals unify around a common goal, they can change the world.

We’ve also seen that art can be a genuine contributor to a world that inspires and heals the human mind. Art therapies, for example, have long been used to enhance the lives of patients suffering from neurological disorders, providing an outlet for self-expression and enhancing their quality of life. Than connects directly to our ambition to cure some of the world’s nastiest neurological diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. So bring on the art, folks.

More about The Lester Prize.

The award aims to inspire Australian artists, empowering them to continue producing thought-provoking, and envelope-pushing artworks. We love their manifesto:

  • It is not one point-of-view, one tone nor one hue.
  • The Lester Prize exhibits all our traits—the heroic, the despicable, the humble, the deplorable, the principled and the fallen.
    When you look upon these portraits of others, you can’t help but see yourself reflected.
  • The Lester Prize captures what it means to be ‘them’, to be ‘me’ and to be ‘us’.
  • With this ancient continent behind it, The Lester Prize looks out while welcoming the world in.
  • It is for portraiture that comes from an unexpected place, but can speak to all.
  • It is for the elevation of the artist but against vacuous celebrity.
  • It is for quality irrespective of style.
  • It is for insight over fashion.
  • It builds reputations, not just venerates those who already have one.
  • This is what makes The Lester Prize the fresh face of portraiture.

We’re making jewellery more meaningful. Firstly, by designing cool rings, necklaces, brooches and more with a deeper meaning to them than just how they look or how much they're worth. Each one has a very human story to tell. And secondly, by giving 100% of the profits to the amazing medical people and institutions researching cures for neurological diseases. People trendier than us call that “conscious consumption”. We just think it makes beautiful sense.

This amazing little enterprise is launching soon and is designed to promote both sustainability and charity. It works like this: we’re sourcing incredible designer-label clothing from the wealthy, then getting fashion and design students to repurpose them into lifestyle accessories that people at every level of society can afford to buy. Things like handbags, wallets, placemats, bookmarks, and so on. With all the money going to fund medical research. We love it and know you will too. Stay tuned for launch announcements.

This is another clever enterprise that’s going to be a real win-win for consumers and society. It’s a sort of environmentally-conscious gifting idea, where we collect unwanted vintage crockery and get talented, altruistic artisans to break it down and create new homewares that people can buy for themselves or as gifts. And again, all the profits go directly to medical research. It’s just like the Aussie Couture Project, really, but with porcelain and fine china!
