Today, Annette Charles who is the Promotional and Marketing Directorof Sistova talks to Femme Lounge on why Sistova is a big deal!
What Is Sistova?
Sistova stands for Sisterhood, Inspiring a Sense of Togetherness, giving Opportunities and Voicing Ambition.
Sistova is a non profit community interest organisation which aims to provide a platform for young creative to showcase their talents, we specialise in music and fashion events.
Whilst at first glance you assume Sistova stands as just another feminist organisation, we are anything but; we encourage the celebration of female talent at its best, but do not exclude the involvement of male talent on the stage, or
within our team. Sistova is a family and seeks to highlight some of the best UK talent around regardless of sex, religion and race.
What Do You Mean Non Profit?
This doesn’t mean we don’t make a profit on events – we do. However; any profit made doesn’t go into the our pockets it goes straight back into financing bigger and better shows for young people to get involved in, this enables us to maintain the much needed platform we provide for up and coming artists.
All of the team works within Sistova Productions are on a voluntary base (including the directors) we do it purely because we LOVE IT!! We aim to give back to our London community, everyone has a purpose and this is ours.
