"WHAT CAN WE DO TO AVOID THE CAPITALIST, NON-FUNCTIONAL, DYSTOPIAN FUTURE?"
"HOW CAN YOU ENGAGE, TAKE ACTION AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE TO THIS IMPENDING CLIMATE CRISIS?"
We are curating a night in order to understand more on how to participate and to be active in creating a better tomorrow!! Using fashion as the initial lens, we are investigating 360˚, through Production > Consumer > Creative. Discovering how within the Micro and Macro scale we can make a difference.
The audience will be present IRL + URL within the experience, using social and real time media to hold court alongside expert panelists: individuals and companies that are challenging the system to develop steps towards a sustainable future.
