Brett Booth works actively in youth culture in the UK, bringing creative design, music, and street life together to celebrate artists through his agency, NERDS.
The agency has a clear and unequivocal stance on structural and systemic racism, pledging publicly: As a majority white-owned business operating in a majority black-influenced cultural landscape, we continue to take our role in the anti-racism movement seriously.
As a business that works in and around black culture, we have a duty to increasingly give back to this culture."
In this episode of The Real Work, Brett walks us through his career path, the gravitational pull towards the work he loves, how they've managed the NERDS business through COVID, and how we can all open up our lens on age and ethnic diversity to embrace the richness in our work.
In this discussion we touch on:
Vaughan Bhagan talks about how careers zig and zag as well as finding belonging through friendships and networks.
