The Blind Project is pleased to announce the launch of Biographe Beta - a limited edition t-shirt line that is used as a training tool to teach survivors of the commercial sex trade a new skill in screen printing, design and production. Biographe Beta goes on sale today!
Each graphic on these limited edition t-shirts is inspired by a woman’s story that has been exploited in the sex trade. Biographe Beta is the culmination of Be a Biographer - an open source design challenge in the summer of 2010 that solicited designers, artists and creative-minded people to tell survivors’ stories through their designs.
This past March, while spending over a month in Bangkok, The Blind Project team worked with NightLight International, our flagship partner, to begin production. We hired a manager, accountant and four survivors to create these graphic tees. None of these women had any experience in screen printing, production or design, and now all have marketable job skills.
Biographe Beta is the first step in moving towards our launch of Biographe - a premium fashion brand which will continue to build upon our existing model of employing and empowering survivors of the commercial sex trade in Bangkok, Thailand. Biographe matters not solely because of what is being created, but how it is being created.
Support our project by purchasing one of these limited edition tees. Simply by making a purchase you are investing in the journey of these four women as they continue to improve their job skills. Biographe Beta is a limited edition line of t-shirts. Once they’re gone, they’re gone! Don’t miss your opportunity today to be part of the journey and invest in future of these survivors.
