May 30 – 31, Museum of Contemporary Craft is hosting a series of programs and events to open up themes relating to sustainability, ingenuity, and entrepreneurship explored in Fashioning Cascadia.

Prototyping Fashion’s Futures is a half-day symposium conceived as a think-tank to envision how Portland can become an incubator for the slow fashion movement. Through various conversations, presentations, and events, this symposium asks: In the way that this region has transformed the fields of transportation, energy, and food, how can we harness this momentum to innovate the apparel industry?
