Let's improve the landscape as Black Lives Matter

We've been taking a few days to learn, reflect and listen to the world around us.

The events, protests and discussions of the last few days have pulled into effect that we could be doing more.

Our aim is to be pushing creativity, enhancing strong learning skills, we have pulled together a few projects and people that we could listen too more.

Talk about it, learn about it and be kinder and wiser.
