artist + educator
Ophelia Dos Santos is a Welsh textile designer and educator; advocating for climate justice and sustainability within fashion. Through her work, Ophelia translates complicated climate science into enjoyable creative content – aiming to reach Black and marginalised communities that are typically less engaged with environmentalism in Wales. Ophelia champions action that is led by optimism for the future, not by fear.
Working within the community, Ophelia uses skill sharing as a powerful tool to explore the complexities of climate change, driving participation and action.
Through her platform she creates educational content, to inform and encourage conversation around fashion, over-consumption and equality.
In 2021, Ophelia produced a short documentary film with the help of BBC Cymru and It’s My Shout productions. ‘Moving to Make It’ follows her dilemmas as a Welsh creative, exploring her mixed Welsh/Cape Verdean heritage.
