Perth streetwear store 1OFF has joined forces this NAIDOC Week with Youth Focus – a community-based youth mental health service working throughout WA.
The not-for-profit organisation provides support to young people between the ages of 12 to 25, offering professional counselling, mental health education and other associated services.
This NAIDOC Week, they’re aiming to help young creatives in Meekatharra connect with culture and heritage, with 14 artists and designers creating their own custom Air Force sneakers. With mentorship from 1OFF owner Jamal Diallo, two winning designs will be chosen by the Meekatharra community – as well as gifting pairs to Eagles and Dockers players, each participant will also keep a pair for themselves.
The young artists have also created custom NAIDOC-themed hoodies and tshirts, which will be sold at 1OFF with profits going towards Youth Focus services in Meekatharra.
If you want to get your hands on a tee of your own, you can head to 1OFF’s King Street store this Saturday evening, where they’ll be unveiling the shirts.
