Launch night with Chillcreate

The Resolve Collective was founded in 2016 by Akil Scafe-Smith who is studying building and urban design in development and Gameli Ladzekpo who has a masters in engineering with business finance.

The pair say: “We’re designers for social impact that aims to address social challenges in cities, through engineering, architecture and art.

“For us collaboration and co-production is a critical part of our ethos. It is always the first step towards realising more equitable visions of change.”

They are interested in youth projects that combine engineering and art in temporary under-utilised space.

Akil and Gameli say: “We have used recycled stuff from the markets and collaborated with around twenty local artists.”

They collaborated with Chillcreate (above) on the launch night and with Dapaah Chocolates and Samosa Shack from this weekend.

They’re  in the Passageway till 29 December.

Akil and Gameli’s previous projects include Rebel Space for Brixton Design Trail and If These Walls Could Talk.

“We love to collaborate with emerging designers, artists, creatives, thinkers to help us design, deliver and manage projects across London.

The Resolve Collective is made up of Akil Scafe-Smith, Seth Scafe-Smith, Gameli Ladzekpo and Vishnu Yayarajan
