COSETTE (Antonio, Adrian, Bryan, Bronte, DJ, Marcus), artists from Vancouver, BC.)

HANA (Hana, artist from Vancouver, BC.)
I grew up in Vancouver and have witnessed the communities around us experience racism and discrimination in many forms. There has been a lack of immediate action, towards improvement in our Indigenous, Black and LGBTQ+ communities. However, we all know too well it does not stop here in Vancouver.
As I’ve begun living life and connecting with individuals of all groups, specifically the black community, my friendships have developed into deep and loving connections, and on countless occasions, I’ve been a confidant to the horrific stories of injustice both directly and indirectly affecting these individuals.
This one piece is from a collection, that depicts the pain and mental toll of oppression due to darker skin colour. Chain motifs and chaos surrounds the figures, leaving us to wonder how much more is left to see and do before being left completely drained. Watching on social media and being idle during a significant movement when you have the privilege to do so, means weare leaving those who need us to hang dry. This all feels really personal for me, and it soon became a means to connect with my circle of like-minded BIPOC friends through the ignorance we’ve faced. Now is an urgent time for us all to do more than the minimum for our brothers and sisters who are facing unimaginable pain, discrimination and violence. It is time for us to do better and hold others accountable.

Lytchi (James, Dom, Raymund), artists based in Vancouver, BC.)
Lytchi, hailing from Asian descent, understands that our brand benefits from a culture, fundamentally cultivated through generations of African-American tradition and heritage.
Moreover, we understand that we cannot empathize with the injustice that the Black community has faced for centuries. Thus, standing in allyship, our submission hopes to use such privilege and opportunity to relay a positive message whilst moving the conversation forward.

SATCHI SALUBRE (Satchi Salubre, artist from Vancouver, BC.)
I am a Filipino woman who had the privilege of studying design and am blessed to be able to share messages that matter. As we continue on this pursuit of justice, it is important that we aid the world with the right language of abolishment. This shirt provides just that and allows the viewer to seek more answers.
As the great Toni Morrison said, “...Just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else.”
