For the launch of Made of Millions, a new grassroots mental health platform we hosted Seen: A Mental Health Exhibition on #WorldMentalHealthDay. The 3 day event at Hoxton Arches Gallery brought the power of digital communities into the real world. Featuring photography of Made of Millions co-founder Rose Cartwright by artist Yumna Al-Arashi, the premiere of their joint short film Mindstory, and work from @Tumblr creators, the event explored what it means to feel seen in the context of mental health. Winter French were responsible for full event and project management.

The world of work is transforming, with many jobs predicted to change or disappear, in the coming years. University tuition fees and student debts are, for many, prohibitively high. And ways into the workplace are diversifying.
The generation all these changes are going to affect most is our children. So, how do you prepare young people for what’s to come? The Pool’s co-founder, Lauren Laverne, and an esteemed panel of journalists, academics, careers advisers, educational technologists discussed and gave parental advice.
Winter French were responsible for full event and project management, talent management, location scouting, voxpops, filming, photography, catering and venue liaison and event styling.
THE POOL PRESENTS…
Wear it like a Mum Sponsored by Boden… celebrating Mums as stylish women!
Held at the beautiful Home House, 100 guests were treated to a Champagne and canapés reception in the Front Parlour. This was followed by a panel discussion with Lauren Laverne discussing Modern Motherhood and What It Means Today – including Q&A and Facebook live, styling sessions by Boden Fashion followed by a network and shopping session.
The brief was to challenge the negative connotation of ‘mumsy’ and ‘mumsiness’ (The OED defines this as ‘frumpy’ and ‘unfashionable’). We commissioned a study of 2k mums around the country and found that only 8% used the phrase in a positive way. An attitude reinforced by the media, we want to turn this connotation on its head, reclaiming it and making it positive.
