ICYT "Hope & Optimism" Charity Tee

$75.00 CAD


- Edmonton based multimedia collective I'll Call You Tomorrow (instagram: @illcallyoutomorrow) presents the "HOPE & OPTIMISM" Charity Tee, with 100% of the proceeds donated to YEG THE COME UP (@yegthecomeup), an Edmonton based organization with a mission to engage and empower african youth through holistic community building. Featuring a back illustration by local Black musician & illustrator @Ayefreydo, the tee interpolates the quote "It is in collectivities that we find reservoirs of hope & optimism" by abolitionist, radical thought leader, and activist Angela Davis from her collected essays "Freedom is Constant Struggle". @Ayefreydo's work serves as a metaphor for building new systems on the foundations of Davis' teachings, while also emphasizing solidarity through intertwined hands and the design of the arch, where if one brick falters the structure's integrity is compromised. At the center of the illustration is a reference to Davis' ties to the Black Panther Party, however @Ayefreydo reinterprets the historic logo with a closed mouth, with slight hints of sharp teeth still visible. In his words, this symbolizes "pause, reflection & learning before taking action." Final details of the tee include heavy 100% cotton, 8.06 knit jersey fabrication. This heavy duty construction encourages extended use and garment life. Additionally - printing, sourcing and freight for this project have all taken place locally with independent businesses in our efforts to maintain sustainability best practices. 

Lastly, those who purchase the "HOPE & OPTIMISM" Charity Tee will be able to send in their order confirmation/proof of purchase to the ICYT instagram (@illcallyoutomorrow) for access to an exclusive, curated playlist as part of their SETLIST FOR CHANGE series, which highlights Edmonton-based Black creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers.
