Event description

Description

We've run our school program, My Clothes, My World, for 4 years and reached over 4800 students and teachers so far! We get rave reviews and also requests from our tribe of public supporters to "please, please offer the workshop outside of school so we can learn, too! It really sounds like so much fun."

So, that's what we're going to do! This summer 2017 we're offering the full workshop to adults! Together we'll explore the fashion industry via the life of a t-shirt from cotton field, through global value chain, to landfill. . . or not!

For those not familiar with our program, My Clothes, My World explores sustainability and social justice through the lens of apparel. Many of us love our fashion as a means of self-expression, but we also want to know that we can make a difference for the planet and people. This participatory and hands-on workshop is a perfect marriage of those interests. We will learn not only about the problems of the fashion industry, but also how we can make a positive difference with daily actions at home and when we shop. We call these actions the 7Rs of Fashion Crusaders! We also send you home with your very own repurposed T-shirt, plus resources for hosting your own swap, or writing to your favourite fashion brand.

Here's a few other important details:

  • our full day workshop is condensed into 4 hours, but we have added 30 minutes to break for lunch
  • You Bring Your Own Lunch, and Bring Your Own Old T-shirt
  • we ask that you watch a documentary, Made In Bangladesh, before you come (we'll send you the link)
  • if you'd like to bring a mature teen (13+) along with you, you may buy a ticket for them, too. (But one only. We want to keep the grown-up vibe, however for teens for whom this is their thing, we'd love to have them along.)
  • we're offiering it 4 times over July and August. Two weekdays, and two weekend options
  • There's a discount for our community and industry Members. If you'd like to know what that's about, tap the links.
