Join us for a day of total ethics fashion! We'll be hosting a clothing swap, offering clothing recycling, eating delicious vegan food, hosting a panel discussion on how to create a total ethics fashion system, sharing clothing repair tips, and screening our short film, Willow and Claude.

Event schedule:

11:30AM
Drop offs for our clothing swap open, and you can bring up to five quality items to swap. Stick around to enjoy the music and food, to pick up a total ethics fashion booklet, recycle unswappable clothes, or learn about clothing repair from Julia English.

2:00PM
Our swap event begins! Everyone will receive tokens in exchange for the clothes they bring along, so everyone will come away with something new to love and care for.

4:00PM
Our swap finishes, and we'll begin preparing for our panel discussion.

4:30PM
A panel discussion between Fiona Patten MP of the Reason Party, Jenna Flood aka The Ironic Minimalist, and Tessa Carroll of A_C, moderated by onnsumer behaviour PhD candidate and lecturer Rachel Lamarche. We'll be exploring how we can help to create a total ethics fashion system – in our own wardrobes, our communities, and on a political level.

5:30PM
Our panel discussion finishes, and we'll set up for our film screening – but first, a trailer for SLAY! Why not get a sweet treat before it begins?

6:00PM
A screening of our multi-award winning short film, Willow & Claude, which explores what it means to craft a total ethics fashion knitwear supply chain.

7:00PM finish

Cost: $5 - $15
