Following the ‘S.E.A.T Project‘, and ‘Protect the Child‘, ‘Life in Parts‘ by Santina Ingui is the third mentorship offered by Hands That Shape Humanity in partnership with the College of Fine Arts in Sydney.
Hands That Shape Humanity is a social enterprise which forms a part of the R.E.A.L Group, a collective of businesses ranging across retail (the R.E.A.L Store), social enterprise (Hands That Shape Humanity) and brand consultancy.
Virginia Bruce, CEO of the R.E.A.L Group, describes why Santina’s project resonates with the group’s conscious approach to design:
“In principle, the Hand Up mentoring program is about having the design graduates create ‘an ordinary product with an extraordinary message’ and in the process create social positive impact and/or change. They are also asked to include themselves in the process. With ‘Life in Parts’ Santina ticked all the boxes, immersing her personal journey and cultural history into the execution of her idea. There is something about what Santina has produced that touches the essence of spirit that we are looking to find.”
