This is a tough one. The creative collectives/gangs/go-getters/organisations you should be following on Instagram far outreaches this ‘top’ five. Sure, these are some of the top ones, but this list is also just a drop in that #ocean. Anytime a group of people come together for one common cause – whether that’s for political reasons, art, education, fashion or just to sip on a piña colada – powerful things can happen. And when you’re privy to it all unfolding on your Insta feed? Well that’s just lucky.
Anybody who brings women together in a creative and empowering way is a winner for me. A self-described “little black book for all of the hottest female movers & shakers around” consider this your ultimate directory of girl power, feat. The Mushpit, London designer Katie Eary and curator Antonia Marsh, to name just a few. This feed will help you keep up with everything amazing that these girls are doing.
SCHOOL OF DOODLE (@SCHOOLOFDOODLE)
The Instagram for this insanely exciting website is a taster of something bigger (see: HUGE) launching next month as an online platform/school to help young girls activate their imaginations. It’s an explosion of in-your-face and inspiring illustrations and artworks feat. FKA twigs, Frida Kahlo and Malala. Led by the hashtag #BeLoud and targeted at teens, it will have anybody who’s gone through girlhood cursing the internet gods and asking where the hell this was when we were all “growing up”. I use the term “growing up” loosely, but seriously, where?
LEMON PEOPLE (@WEARELEMONPEOPLE)
London-based photography collective Lemon People, founded by Dazed contributor and photog Steph Wilson, is an extremely visually satisfying feed of images – from vagina wigs to series exploring gender. Need I say more?
ANG BLEU (@SANGBLEU)
Sang Bleu has been on the scene for a decade now – whether that’s through their mag, art gallery, tattoo studio or clothing line so there’s a definite chance that you know them well. But they’re here, now, in this list because basically they’ve always got good things going on, and their Instagram is one sure-fire way to keep up with such good things.
ART BABY GALLERY (@ARTBABYGIRL)
Okay so there’s not really an ‘official’ Instagram account for Art Baby Gallery, but this is as close as it gets – and being close to curator/artist and gallery founder Grace Miceli is no bad thing. Recently launching the exhibition Girl At Night On The Internet, Miceli has been sharing shots of the collectives’ art fruits. So if you can’t make it to NYC to experience the group’s first ever IRL show, you can scroll through instead.
