Hosted by Duzi Studio, founded by Shillington London graduates Ella Donald and Charlotte Carnegie-Brown, The Dolly Effect aims to shine a light on female voices—from comedy and music to art and dance.
Some of the most valuable and rewarding relationships we have built through design are those alongside, or in support of, other women. For this evening, Duzi have joined forces to reignite an initiative that was set up by The Ministry called ‘The Dolly Effect’—giving mentorship to females, by females.
Coined ‘The Dolly Effect’ after Dolly Parton, a woman who is seen as an unexpected feminist icon for many—a hard worker, a vocal supporter of women, and altogether an empowering individual. As a pioneer for women in the music industry, she has made her mark on the world and her legacy will live on for years to come.
The purpose of this event is to launch a series at The Ministry, opening up The Dolly Effect to those beyond the space. We will be celebrating a range of voices throughout the evening, each interpreting a compelling and thought-provoking Dolly Parton quote.
Entertainment for the evening will be Dior Bediako, Posy Sterling, Grace Campbell, Roxy Dunn, singer/songwriter LA and DJ Nikki Beatnik.
Friday 8 November, 6:30pm to 1am. The Ministry, 79-81 Borough Road, London SE1 1DN.
