Unlabelled is a project based platform. We create project based stories periodically.
We feature and highlight BIPOC voices through impactful storytelling, particularly those of women and focuses on themes such as identity, culture, spirituality and creative industries.
We strive to influence people of colour to embrace their identity whilst giving a unique perspective on what it means to be young in Africa and the Diaspora. We connect to an extensive multicultural audience through innovation and authenticity in thought provoking stories that explore the current social landscape.
