The first drop took place at Gaunson Creative Open Studios in Tottenham, September 2022.
It was 4 artist badges made to sell in my studio during the open studios weekend.
The response to the badges went so far beyond my expectations that it became the catalyst for developing this project into what it is now.
Subsequent distributions to artists helped me to see how even something so small could capture excitement and joy.
When I left my art teaching job in December 2022 I gave every student a badge and a mini manifesto for a creative life.
