Glimpse - Zac Schwarz and James Turner
Zac and James Co-Founded Glimpse with a group of friends who wanted to try something different. Instead of criticising what’s going wrong, they wanted to imagine a world where these problems had been elegantly solved. Many of them are from creative backgrounds and wondered if they could use their existing skills to show a glimpse of something else, something better.
The pair will be talking about one of their most recent projects 'Rosine’s Hot Chocolate Salon'. To mark the start of Fairtrade Fortnight, Glimpse and the Fairtrade Foundation set to unveil the world’s first secret hot chocolate salon, hidden inside an unassuming East London newsagent. Within the magazine racks and behind the countless snacks, inquisitive chocolate lovers will be invited to press a secret button that will see a hidden door open and transport them to a West-African themed speakeasy-style cafe. The Salon is named after a real cocoa and aims to tell the true story behind our favourite chocolate bars and why cocoa farmers, deserve a fair living income. Three hot chocolates will be on the menu - created by leading celebrity chefs, Melissa Hemsley, Tess Ward and Tom Hunt.
