She was also honoured to join the Board of Decentralised Technology organisation Furtherfield, to support experimental initiatives in decentralised arts and technology practices. With a personality marked by her enthusiasm and peaceful spirit, Kandice has a passion for elevating cultural perspectives, influenced by her own Anglo-Indian and Dominican heritage. Her influences also include having briefly lived in Berlin, Los Angeles, and the Greek Island of Lesvos, where she supported people seeking sanctuary from across the world. It’s her desire therefore, to tell stories that cultivate nuanced conversations through multidisciplinary art forms, communicating unique insights, shared values, revealing common ground for our rich and diverse human experience. On a personal level, Kandice sees Art Direction as a new home for her experiences and skills that can potentially have an impact on social innovation. She loves exploring the relationship creativity has with the senses, to catalyse emotions, new ways of thinking and positively influence action. Currently studying theology and art, Kandice’s personal and visual philosophy is pursuing the restoration of all things.

Maya Nicco Copywriter Bio Maya Nicco Copywriter Hi, I’m Maya! My love of writing, drawing, and pretty much anything creative started when I was in Primary School. I used to illustrate silly stories with stick people and, filmed a silly TV series featuring my stuffed toys. I also used to tape a silly “do not disturb” sign on my door so production wouldn’t be disturbed. Well, it wasn’t silly to me, it started my love of film, writing and all things creative- it also taught me the importance of backing up my files! I am a lot better at backing up my files now. I like to think that I’m better at drawing and, since I am studying Journalism, I hope I’m a better writer. Outside of Uni, you can find me playing video games and, making candles (not at the same time). Chiara Nnanna-Dikeocha Copywriter Bio Chiara Nnanna-Dikeocha Copywriter Hey!

Xavier Pencille Art Director Bio Xavier Pencille Art Director Beginning In his childhood telling his stories in third person. Xavier Pencille AKA XZVR is a LDN based self taught artist/storyteller, constantly evolving and honing his craftsmanship. However, he had no idea he’d be redirected on a path to purpose striving to articulate his vision. Black British with some Caribbean spice. He grew up knowing he’d run a business one day. Volunteering and taking it upon himself to represent even the smallest voices. He takes pride in his community and the impact of narratives. Having values at the forefront of both business and lifestyle. He came to the realisation that in order to be in a position of power, you must be accountable for your culture and heritage at every level. Out of office, movies, anime, video games, family time. Not in that order. Nothing brings him more joy than potential for growth. especially coming from a mode of survival.
