Clothing For Crisis

October 26 | 1:30 | Tower Theatre

Many factors that contribute to the safety of refugees and migrants worldwide; some allowing them to cross borders undeterred or be assisted in a moment of life or death. Clothing has typically NOT been considered one of these safety facilitators or a crisis aids. Apparel with intentional and innovative design CAN, however, offer aid in emergency situations, as well as combat prejudice and ignorance, promote solidarity, and spread awareness. Angela Luna will highlight these crisis-aiding values and how we all can contribute to this cause.

Recontextualizing Fashion

October 27 | 10:30 | 90 Minutes | The Capitol

In order to understand the full potential of our clothing, we need to recontextualize its place in society and start considering it as a tool. Through this workshop, participants will explore the varying possibilities for clothing and design to be used a utilities in addressing societal issues. Any traditional interpretations of fashion will be questioned, as we examine just how far clothing can go in responding to developments in our modern world, and just how important it is in our daily lives.
