The Lift Up Project started as a newsletter for women working in different creative industries. Launched in New York in 2016, the aim of the project was to create an online space to celebrate women and their work, and to introduce these women to one-another through a fortnightly newsletter.
Each newsletter profiled three women from different creative industries, and also featured an interview with someone who inspired me. Previous interviewees include; Digital content lead of Topshop in NYC - Karla Evans, Author and podcaster - Emma Gannon, Author - Laura Jane Williams, Design*Sponge Founder - Grace Bonney and Worn Agency founder - Nicole Corbett. You can view some of the newsletter archive to read past emails.
In 2017, I talked to Marie Claire about Shine Theory and why I think it's important to champion the women in your life.
