Ellen Porteus x Totes Making a Diff

Totes Making A Diff uses tote bags to engage with talented artists who design punny illustrations to screen print on our bags. This concept doesn’t just stop at tote bags, it provides an opportunity to have an impact on a local grassroots charity. We are giving 50% of all profits to Artful Dodgers Studio to fund the development of their own social enterprises and to provide a more sustainable income model away from government grants. The Artful Dodgers Studio use art as the hook to engage disadvantaged young people through their studio based in Collingwood, Australia. It has created a safe and vibrant space where young people can develop their artistic skills, and be recognised as cultural contributors and decision makers.
