MindSight Collective is a non-profit social and multimedia activism platform, giving the tools to the community to be the best version of itself and the power to change their narrative through creative mediums such as podcasts, articles, and community service.
It’s your chance to come and be part of the action with live demo launch, panel discussions, live entertainment, networking and more. We will be raising money on the night with raffles, merchandise and donations so we can do our part in serving you and our community.
Our theme for our get-together is “Rulers and Royalty” so come dressed to impress with your dashikis, African garments, dancing shoes and let’s show that we are the change we want to see. This event is for adults over 18.
On the night join our special guests and come to be stimulated, inspired and uplifted at MindSight Collective’s Rulers and Royalty Launch Party.
Our special guests on the discussion panel are:
Charmaine Simpson, BSc (Hons) Econ, CEO of Black History Studies and Co-Founder with her husband Mark Simpson. Charmaine Simpson is currently a Researcher for the Institute of Black Culture, Media and Sport working on the project ‘African History of Sport’ documentary project.
Dayna Byfield-Grant, Founder of a bespoke wealth creation company, Motivational Speaker and Financial Educator. Dayna is an incredibly resilient, intuitive and ambitious person who revels in helping others think and be more in their finances and business.
Dionne Ible, Mosaic Artist, and Entrepreneur of Qemamu Mosaic. Dionne has a distinctively vibrant style which is inspired by her African heritage. Using a blend of glass, beads and sometimes discarded objects, she creates work that catches the eye and stirs the soul.
Katrina Ffrench, Chief Executive at StopWatch, a coalition of legal experts, academics, citizens and civil liberties campaigners. Katrina aims to address excess and disproportionate stop and search, promote best practice and ensure fair, effective policing for all.
Leon Marshall, Founder of The Hidden Science Academy, and Director of Fitness Trainer UK. Leon is also a part-time Lecturer in Sports and Exercise Science at London South Bank University. He is a fitness education provider that delivers gym instructor courses and personal trainer courses as well as works with young offenders who are disengaged from school, family life, society, and from the chance to succeed.
We have three workshops on the night:
Health – Have any health issues? Want to be empowered to take control of your health and well being? Need motivation to really commit to a healthy lifestyle? Leon Marshall will be running this workshop to ensure he gets you on the right path to a better you.
Black History & Culture – Want to know if we were ever really rulers and royalty? Are questioning what is Black culture? How does Black history relevant to my identity? Charmaine Simpson will guide you through the times we rule and the civilisations that we built.
Legal – Ever been stopped and searched by the police and you didn’t know what to do? Do you know your rights and the power you have as a citizen? Wondering why Black males are highly disproportionately profiled, harassed, and arrested by the police? Katrina Ffrench will be breaking down the law and putting power back in your hands to know what to do in the face of a negative police encounter. This is especially helpful for parents that may be worried.
