DOLLY NOIRE & HELLRATON x AVSI
Another talk will be the one with guests Daniele Crepaldi, brand manager of Dolly Noir and Hell Raton, founding artist of the collective Machete and Hellmuzik, for the presentation of the project “Sound of Africa” in collaboration with AVSI, an organization that operates in 150 countries and that deals with projects of education, recovery, and accompaniment during the growth of children and adolescents born in difficult realities.
This initiative was born from a trip of Crepaldi and Hell Raton to Uganda, where the producer and DJ had gone with the aim of collecting sounds typical of the African continent for a special DJ set that animated an event in the store of Dolly Noir.
During the trip, the couple had the opportunity to get in touch with different realities, including those fundamental to the life of the community.
For this reason, the Italian brand decided to commit itself to give something back to those it met personally, giving life to the AVSI Tee project and donating to charity the entire proceeds of the t-shirts, which you can buy here, characterized by a shot of photographer Roberto Graziano Moro.
The launch of the t-shirt is accompanied by the documentary Sound of Africa, shot by Stefano Boen, which tells the story of this incredible experience in Africa, between the search for sounds, the discovery of AVSI’s activities and the meeting with the children followed by the association.
This and other exclusive talks, with prominent personalities of streetwear, but also a contest of skate by Vans and the contest of music production The Amazing Beat, await you in Turin.
To crown the end of each day many aperitifs and musical afterparties.
There is something for everyone, the only thing missing is an excuse not to come.
