Nasir Sobhani aka ‘The Streets Barber’, is a true Nomad, not just of the world, but also of the mind. Growing up in Japan, attending University in Canada, volunteering his time for Youth Work in the Vanuatu and then Australia to start up his own initiative helping the homeless, Nasir has certainly lived a fruitful life. It wasn’t all smooth sailing though, with a crippling drug addiction along the way, Nasir thanks his Baha’i faith and barbering for his new found sobriety. Working six days a week cutting hair, Nasir spends his one day off hitting the streets to give free haircuts to the homeless. He calls it, ‘Clean Cut Clean Start’.

We live in a world where success is the only measure of success.
UK government funding for sport is based on medal prospects. Basketball, played by 218,000 14-16 year olds every week in London alone, was judged to have little chance of future medals and its funding was slashed. Basketball can give hope and focus to those who might otherwise have neither – but its future hangs in the balance.
Directed by Jon E Price and featuring London poet James Massiah, Underneath the Noise celebrates Britain’s raw talent and gives a voice to young ball players.

thank you for the wonderful installations, performances, sculptures, songs, paintings, new forms of art, and the blood, sweat, tears…and smiles.
we want to say thank you to all the people that helped make MADE a reality – you know who you are. you helped us develop a blueprint for how art, audience and brands can respect, support and co-exist in harmony with each other.

Johnny “Cupcakes” Earle started 16 companies before finally getting it right. In his entertaining talk, Johnny outlines the various hardships and small, clever things he incorporated into his brand that ultimately led to the success of the Johnny Cupcakes t-shirt brand.
Named America’s #1 Young Entrepreneur by BusinessWeek, and recognized 4 years in a row for making it into the Inc. 500 | 5000 fastest growing independent companies in America, Johnny Earle started his business by selling t-shirts out of the trunk of an ’89 Toyota Camry when he was 19.
