Riposte Presents... The Berlin Edition

Following on from our monthly event series in London we’re heading over to Berlin to meet some of our readers and bring together a collection of our favourite Berlin based women. On 15th September, we’ll be hosting The Berlin Edition at the beautiful FvF Apartment. Throughout the evening we’ll be hearing talks from an inspiring line up of women including Fa’ Empel, designer and environmental activist behind the label Pawaka, curator Laetitia Duveau

of Curated By Girls, Isabell Hummell of Soda Books and the ever innovative multi-disciplinary artist Sarah Illenberger. There’ll be tasty drinks and even tastier food served by our friend Ruth at the Black Isle Bakery. It’s all been made possible by the very kind support of American Apparel and our brilliant event partners Freunde von Freunden. Spots are super limited but if you’d like to join us please email studio@ripostemagazine.com. Come & join us!

Issue #6: Everyday Activism

We live in very weird times. With so many huge issues, rampant inequality and injustice going on in the world it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. As if it’s impossible for one person to really make a difference. To try and get to grips with what we can practically do as individuals or how we can join forces with others to make an impact we brought together a collection of innovative activists from across a range of causes. We met with Sisters Uncut, trans activist Charlie Craggs who is spreading her fabulous activism one manicure at a time, environmental activist Peggy Oki, Kerrie-Anne Mendoza

of The Canary and Mary Joyce of Meta-Activism. Each of them broke down what they did, what they were fighting against and how everyone can get involved. To accompany the feature we commissioned a brilliant series of images that were inspired by each of the causes featured in the article. The team was led by photographer Stephanie Wilson, make-up by Holly Sillius, hair by Yusuke Morioka, stylist was Kyanisha Morgan and models were Lily Newmark, Meg Nixon and Laura Kirwan Ashman. Thanks to everyone involved. To read the feature in full, order your copy of issue #6 here.
