Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and LeeImagine, 100 days of positive thought and active change? Imagine 100 days where if you speak up you'll be heard?
In an provocative and inspiring collaboration Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee Jeans are inviting you to stand up and speak out!
Take a photo, write a slogan, create an image and show your active resistance. Each day a submission is selected and will be shared online at www.ar100days.com.
The project began on the 8th September and runs over 100 days. At the close of 100 days, the 100 chosen images will become a part of a London exhibition dedicated to the project.
Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee are actively encouraging communication and individuality through this online installation. The Dame herself explains how “The principle idea of Active Resistance is that you get out of life what you put in and that real experience of the world involves thinking...“It is not enough to follow world politics, see films and read the prize-winning best seller. This is superficial, you need to go deep in order to understand who you are, what the world is and how things could be better. This involves culture which can only be acquired by self-education: human beings should mirror the world.”
