‘The most important philosophical question ever asked is “what is a good life?” A good life is one which mirrors the world. That means that you understand the world through art and culture. You understand the genius of the human race and you understand yourself in relation to it. You’re like a little tiny shard of mirror glass that’s exactly a copy of the whole world. You’re very beautiful because you understand the beauty of the world and you understand the human race and you want to do your best.’ -Vivienne Westwood, S/S 2016 Through a series of imagery, video and live streaming our #MIRRORTHEWORLD campaign collaborates with artists, writers, poets, musicians, academics and activists to create and share content – with the aim to support the creative community and to connect audiences to our culture, and the culture of others.
