FACE is co-founded by Sharon Lloyd, Course Director Southampton Solent; Pascal Matthias, Senior Teaching Fellow at the Winchester School of Art and Andrew Ibi, Course Leader Liverpool John Mores University.

Formed to challenge the lack of Black and Brown academics in the system, which directly impacts the experience of all young creatives but especially Black and Brown students, FACE demands acknowledgement of the contribution of Black culture and creativity, to history, society and to fashion.
