CONVERSE PUBLIC ACCESS
EPISODE 1: AN UNFILTERED EXPRESSION OF YOUTH CULTURE FROM THE MIND OF MAISIE WILLIAMS
We think if a brand wants to truly support youth culture, they have to provide them with tools, a co-sign, and get the hell out of the way. So we created a Public Access show for Converse, and gave full control to Maisie Williams.
We launched Public access with Maisie, featuring guests Millie Bobby Brown, Amandla Stenberg, Musician Syd, Chef Flynn McGarry, and a handful of young activists including Shade Zine and Mercy for Animals. The aesthetic was an updated take on a classic Public Access tv show set and styles, and the entire episode was completely unscripted except Maisie’s personal notes. The fun and absurd tone was buffered by serious dialogue about creativity, activism, bullying and general concerns facing young people today.
