MAKING STORIES OF
BLACK RESILIENCE HEARD

Black Resilience is the latest chapter in the New Chieftains. We want to normalise the notion of black excellence. And give a platform to inspiring black voices. Because making these voices heard will help build a more just world.  

A nation-wide street exhibition with posters will launch this exciting new chapter. Watch this space. But we’re also on the hunt for more people to tell their stories. 

We want non-conformists. Creative minds. People who inspire. Break moulds. Push boundaries. Just fill out the form below to nominate someone to be part of our tribe.

HOW WE’LL SHARE BLACK RESILIENCE STORIES

All chapters of New Chieftains are developed using powerful photography storytelling from Agenda Brown.

If someone has been selected, their story will be captured through an interview. Two portraits will be taken of them by Agenda.

We may create behind the scenes content to be used, too. The chapter will then become a series of printed and digitally promoted content.

The launch of each a new chapter coincides with supper clubs, street and indoor exhibitions and talks. Keep an eye out on our site for details of these.

Once you have nominated a potential New Chieftain, we will get in touch by email to confirm this process.
