Fruit skin fabric, mushroom ‘leather’, spider-silk, dye made by bacteria and algae; GROW, the new exhibition from the Fashion for Good Museum in Amsterdam explores the biomaterials and cutting-edge innovations that are shaping the sustainable future of fashion. What exactly are biomaterials? How sustainable are they and what makes them different from traditional fibres like cotton and hemp? And does bio always mean better and sustainable? Navigating the many different kinds of sustainable materials can be challenging. For their year-long exhibition, curated and developed in-house for the first time, the Fashion for Good Museum dives into all things biomaterials.

WHAT ARE BIOMATERIALS?

Biomaterial is a very generic word used to describe materials that are biological, and originate from living organisms. When you think of biomaterials, probably the first things that come to mind are cotton, hemp and linen. Because the word is not specific, it can easily be confusing. The world of biomaterials is way bigger and ever evolving. Think as big as silk, fruitskins (waste), mycelium (mushroom roots) or even algae, spider and caterpillar silk, cellulosics (coming from plants) and bioplastics, all of which are part of the biomaterials world.

LOVE FASHION FROM THE GROUND UP

Fashion has always celebrated the ingenuity of nature, from its organic shapes and patterns, materials and fibres, to the wide array of colours and textures. With the rise of fast fashion, the natural world is plundered for its resources, putting the relationship between fashion and nature under strain.

The GROW expo shows how trailblazing innovations can instead take inspiration from nature and how scientists are using this cycle of creation and recreation to make the sustainable materials of the future.

Showcasing conventional biomaterials such as organic cotton and biodegradable materials such as flax or hemp, the expo also presents more innovative brands and products from pioneers such as Pangaia (available for the first time in a retail store in the Netherlands), FREITAG F-ABRIC, the Nude Label, Phool, Bananatex and Bioglitz – with a special glitter station, featuring in the museum’s GOOD SHOP.

 

GROW 1.0 opens its door to the public from April 6th.

Virtual tours of the exhibition can be booked here.

Physical visits to the museum can be reserved when possible.

Cada año, Altrapo Lab, en colaboración con La Casa Encendida, programan actividades durante el mes de abril, que ayudan a difundir la urgencia de un cambio en el sistema de la  moda. Una transformación  que genere un impacto positivo a nivel ambiental y social.

En esta ocasión, han organizado una charla con Sarah Corbett el 7 de abril a las 19:00 donde conoceremos como el activismo puede desarrollarse desde la energía creativa y la producción manual. El cambio climático, la industria de la moda y los salarios justos, son algunos de los temas en los que Sarah y el Colectivo Craftivista han intervenido en el Reino Unido.

Sarah Corbett, autora de “A Little Book of Craftivism” 2013 y “How To Be A Craftivist”, 2017, es activista profesional y fundadora de Craftivist Collective, una organización que trabaja para entidades sociales uniendo la artesanía y el activismo para  involucrar a las personas en temas de justicia social.

 

En esta charla con Sarah trataremos temas como la reivindicación de las habilidades manuales frente al consumismo compulsivo y el poder de la creatividad para atraer el interés de las personas hacia el cambio de hábitos. Como punto de unión con el movimiento Fashion Revolution profundizaremos con la activista sobre el papel de creadores y diseñadoras de moda así como el de las personas consumidoras, en la defensa de una industria sostenible a nivel ambiental y social.

Conexión a través del canal de Instagram y del canal de You Tube de La Casa Encendida. Miércoles 7 de abril a las 19h.

En esta ocasión, han organizado para los días 12, 13 y 14 de abril un Taller de Craftivismo:

Craft+Activism (artesanía y activismo) dan lugar al concepto craftivismo.

Según uno de los manifiestos difundidos por el movimiento, el craftivismo es “crear un mundo mejor; puntada a puntada (…)”  Pancartas de patchwork, mensajes expresados en tricot, murales protesta o lemas bordados son algunas de sus expresiones más populares.

En este taller online conoceremos en profundidad qué es y cómo surge el craftivismo. Veremos las tipologías y las diferentes acciones que se han ido desarrollando por diferentes personas y colectivos del movimiento.

Do you have clothes in great condition, but you don’t wear them anymore? Are you looking to replace them with new pieces that fit your needs right now?
Then this clothing swap is the perfect sustainable solution for you!
Bring your gently used pieces of clothing to our warehouse on April 17th and swap them out with new-to-you pieces! We ask each attendee brings between 5-15 pieces of prewashed clothing that are in great condition. Preferred women’s/non-gender-specific clothing/styles.
We will be hosting 2 back-to-back events- one for those who wear L-4XL and another for those that wear XS-M.
This is an indoor event, so we are limiting attendance to 15 people for each group. Masks, social distancing, and lots of fun are required.

Viral Message Challenge
YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CALL FOR CHANGE.

The Goal
Companies are at the mercy of their customers.  And as consumers we can push companies to make the changes and reveal information we want.  Social media gives consumers the power to reach thousands of people in an instant.

So let’s use that power for good!

Teams are tasked with creating social media campaigns to spread awareness of issues in the fashion industry and push companies towards transparency.  The team with the most engagement on their campaign wins the challenge, and everyone wins in the end!

This event is part of the Hashtag Revolt Campaign and the Transparency Beyond Tier One project.

The Team Structure
Teams are welcome to join from anywhere. They can join as a pre-made team or we are happy to match up with other participants.

We welcome participants from anyone of any age, anywhere in the world! Keep in mind that the workshops and pitches will take place on Dublin Time (GMT). Teams are expected to participate in the workshops and final pitches to be determined for the final prizes.

The Schedule
Introduction Talk — Saturday 17th (2GMT – 4GMT)
During this workshop, we will explain to participants the different aspects of the issues around companies disclosing their production practices.

During this time we’ll hear from speakers who are experts on fashion, corporate structure, production, or other relevant topics to better understand why the current issues exist and what the possible solutions are. We will also explain the details of the challenge. During the event, the teams will need to identify a specific aspect of listed companies’ production practices that they are hoping to change.

They will be tasked with creating and implementing a social media campaign to draw attention to the issue and to influence the relevant companies. Teams will have 24h on Monday 19th, the first day of the Fashion Revolution 2021 to put their campaign out there and measure their impact! Success will be measured in the number of people they manage to connect with (through shares, likes, views, etc), the amount of action they are able to affect (through petition signatures, emails sent, etc), and whether they were able to get a response from the target company. We will wrap with a talk from a relevant marketing expert on how to create a campaign that draws attention to a relevant issue and affect action.

Mentor session — Sunday 18th (2GMT – 5GMT)
The teams will meet during the day with a mentor to discuss the progress of their campaign and get last-minute feedback if needed. Mentors include experts in sustainability, fashion industry, communication, social media, animation, design.

Action DAY– Monday 19th All-day
Teams are implementing their campaign for 24h on social media!

Results day – Wrap up Tuesday 20th – 6GMT – 8GMT
Teams will present their campaign to the panel of judges.

The winning team (based on the pitch impact numbers, and any other criteria that can be determined) is announced!

The Prize
The winners will get their own blog post on the Fashion Revolution and be included in the Fashion Revolution weekly newsletter. So they can share what they accomplished with the world!

Questa #impattochallenge é ideale per tutti coloro che hanno voglia di mettersi in gioco per contribuire ad un settore tessile più equo e giusto nei confronti dei suoi lavoratori.

Fashion Question Time is a powerful platform to debate the future of the fashion industry during Fashion Revolution Week.
This year’s theme, ‘Rights, Relationships and Revolution’ is incredibly pressing in our current global socio-political context. Human rights and the rights of nature are interconnected and interdependent. We need a revolutionary shift in our relationships with each other, with our clothes, within fashion supply chains, and with the natural world, for our own prosperity and wellbeing, and for the health of our earth, rivers and oceans. Growing numbers of people are radically reassessing what’s meaningful in their lives and starting to reimagine the values at the essence of a new fashion system.
On the panel, we’ll be joined by:
Nicole Rycroft, founder and executive director of Canopy.
Nazma Akter, a Bangladeshi trade unionist, founder of AWAJ Foundation and Sommilito Garments Sramik Federation.
Lara Wolters, a Dutch politician and member of the European Parliament
Dr Vandana Shiva, an Indian author, scholar and environmental activist.
Sunny Dolat, a stylist, production designer and creative director, co-founder of The Nest Collective and member of Fashion Revolution Kenya.
The panel will be chared by Baroness Lola Young, co-chair and cross-bench peer for the UK’s All-Party Parliamentary Group: Ethics and Sustainability in Fashion. It will follow a BBC Question Time format and will discuss projections, ideas and best practice as well as answer a diverse range of questions submitted by participants and members of the public. If you wish to submit a question please email it alongside your full name to RSVP@fashionrevolution.org.
Hosted in collaboration with the V&A Museum with an opening speech by Tristram Hunt.

A discussion about circular fashion and how we can achieve a more successful circular fashion model in Africa.

Moderator: Beatrace Angut Oola | Fashion Africa Now

Panellists:

1. Cherie Birkner | Sustainable Fashion Matterz
2. Ak Ibrahim | IGC Fashion
3. Victor Namutwe| Joroh Clothing.
4. Aweko Faith | Reform Africa Tbc.

The fashion scene in Uganda is young and vibrant, although there are shady sides of the fashion economy. In the last years the scene has been growing and more and conscious fashion brands are trying to cultivate their business. The fashion industry is facing different challenges, on the one hand the second hand business and on the other hand the cheap and mass production from Asia. The local fashion market is not able to step out of the shadows and build an independent economy. It is time to recognise and promote the potential of fashion creators.

Why is the Ugandan fashion economy not a circular economy? How can the fashion economy support local Made in Uganda fashion brands? What needs to be implemented to create a circular fashion economy? What examples do already exist in the local fashion market? These are some questions we want to discuss with you in an open Q&A.

This event is organised by Fashion Revolution Uganda and IGC Fashion in Partnership with MoTIV Uganda, Fashion Africa Now and Goethe-Zentrum.

Hosted by Natasha Simpson – USW Fashion Revolution student ambassador.

Within this 30 minute meeting, I will be sharing and discussing Fashion Revolution. I will be sharing a range of assets such as Instagram story posts, grid posts and even an Instagram filter.

I want to encourage all USW students to take an active roll in Fashion Revolution week and I will be discussing how you can become USW’s dedicated Fashion Revolution student ambassador.

Maison Faliakos’ is a couture house established in Athens in 1981. For Fashion Open Studio is hosting a 3-day event. Day one will be an Upcycling Couture workshop. Demonstrating how a deadstock, old luxury garment, is deconstructed to become something new. Day two will be a series of Inspirational Talks with six women who will visit the Atelier and share their personal upcycling couture experiences. Day three will tell the personal story of a former human trafficking victim who now works at Maison Faliakos.

When COVID-19 hit last year, fashion brands refused to pay for an estimated $40 billion worth of finished goods. The catastrophic result saw millions of garment workers laid off around the world, resulting in the largest humanitarian crisis the sector has ever seen.

The #PayUp campaign was introduced in March 2020 to try and combat that. It held brands to account for paying for the orders they had cancelled, recouping an estimated $15 billion in the process. It’s a huge achievement, but there’s still a long way to go. The latest incarnation of the campaign, #PayHer, accordingly zones in on the role of gender justice and regulatory reform around wages.

Join FashMash founders Rachel Arthur and Rosanna Falconer for an evening with the brains behind the work. Ayesha Barenblat, founder and CEO of non-profit organisation Remake, will talk about why centring justice in the fashion conversation is so crucial and how she is lobbying brands to change the way they operate.

Eight years on from the Rana Plaza disaster, and hosted during Fashion Revolution Week, our aim is to explore how we remove exploitation as our industry’s status quo. We’ll discuss what’s happening on the ground from Bangladesh to China, not to mention with Boohoo in Leicester, and also dig into why advocacy trumps ethical consumerism.

En memoria del incidente del Rana Plaza, queremos enfocar nuestra atención
sobre, “los revolucionarios de la moda consciente”en Canarias.
Cada día de la Semana de la Fashion Revolution dirigiremos el foco de las miradas hacia
diferentes personas que están haciendo un esfuerzo por generar un cambio en el ecosistema
de la moda. Con charlas y videos Nuestra esperanza es que la gente tome conciencia del modo en el que consume,
algo que se ha vuelto incluso más importante ahora debido al impacto del Covid 19 sobre
nuestras vidas, nuestros negociosy el ecosistema general de la economía global,medioambiental y social.

Webinar sobre como sermos ativistas através da moda.

Olhar para a moda como indústria integrante de um sistema capitalista, supremacista branco, patriarcal e heteronormativo, pensar o vestir como comunicação e a roupa como meio, para sermos ativistas muito para lá do consumo.

Bio: Joana Guerra Tadeu é ecofeminista e ativista pela justiça social e climática. É acompanhada por uma comunidade de milhares de ambientalistas imperfeitos para quem cria conteúdos na área da sustentabilidade.

This is a FREE event on Zoom. Please RSVP through the Peatix link for a Zoom invite! The event will also be broadcast on Facebook Live.

It’s no secret that the fashion industry has a waste crisis. As we wag our fingers at fashion brands that grapple with their perfectly good overstock in often destructive ways, we as consumers could also afford to take a closer look at the way we grow tired of perfectly good clothes and inadvertently fuel the creation of more – more clothing and more packaging.

Why is there so much fashion waste? What can we do to solve this problem? And what really happens to the clothes we discard, or donate?

With less than 10% of donated clothing actually being circulated through charity shops and 94% of all textile and plastics waste being incinerated and landfilled, perhaps it is time for us to reckon with the privilege that fuels it.

Join us in this conversation to discuss:

Webinar sobre como identificar os vários truques de marketing.

Queremos ser mais conscientes, mas a Moda está minada de marcas com promessas vagas e resultados difusos. Do fast-fashion ao greenwashing, vamos identificar os vários truques de marketing.

Bio: Salomé Areias é uma activista apaixonada por comportamento de consumo de fashionables e por desconstruir a agenda política do consumismo.

This is a FREE event on Zoom. Please RSVP through the Peatix link for a Zoom invite! The event will also be broadcast on Facebook Live.

The fashion industry contributes to 10% of greenhouse gas emissions worldwide and we each play a part with or without realising it. But who can really make a difference to change the industry for the better – the people, the private sector, or the government?

Join us as we venture beyond the fashion industry to explore this question with our speakers, who grapple with the same sustainability conundrum in other spaces, and learn how every one of us can be catalysts of change through both our personal choices and our voices.

Through this discussion, we will discover:

  • the interconnection between different sectors and their changemaking strategies
  • how we can be part of the solution as individuals
  • how advocacy can look in Singapore

April 23, the first day of the 3-days Raise Your Voice Festival is dedicated to the mobilization of young people on the issues of Climate Change and Human Trafficking and more specifically of Child Trafficking.

Information Laboratories for

  • Climate Change & Crisis
  • Human Rights Violations & Trafficking with a focus on child trafficking

Informing the public about the work of NGOs, about the services they offer to victims of human trafficking, refugees and immigrants and public participation in interactive workshops. We learn how to identify victims of trafficking and how to react.

Dedicated to raising youth awareness, open to school participations.

This year, Raise Your Voice invites you to a three-day art and culture festival with the message “Make the Connection Between Daily Choices and Human Trafficking – Between Daily Choices and Climate Change”. And see how the things that connect us are much more than those that separate us!

  • Human Slavery ART & Costume Exhibition: Are you an artist; Take part with your visual and artistic work and Make the Connection with Human Trafficking.
  • Stage Dance & Stage Music: Are you a dancer and/or performer? Take part with your choreography or your musical interpretation and make the connection with human trafficking. Record your performance and submit it for your participation in the Festival. All works of art will take part in the Human Slavery Art Competition sponsored by CNN and the Californian Greek Reporter.
  • Human Rights Stories: Tell your story with a selfie-video and submit it for participation in the festival. Help us put an end to human trafficking and human rights abuses.
  • Human Rights Workshops: Information Laboratories against violence and human trafficking. Informing the public about the work of NGOs, about the services they offer to victims who survived human trafficking, refugees and immigrants and public participation in interactive workshops. Learn how to identify victims of trafficking and how to react.

Culture, Nature, and Textiles are fundamentally interconnected and interdependent. How does the appropriative behaviour of the fashion industry affect the well-being of these communities and the well-being of our natural environment?

From appropriation of traditional designs without consent, credit or compensation, to disrupting the cycles of use and regeneration of natural resources, the fashion industry does not hold a record of best practices for developing and sustaining relationships with Indigenous and Local Communities.

This event is a platform for conversation with those who walk the talk. We will be hearing from various actors and representatives of local communities who are implementing practical solutions in response to appropriation of cultural expressions and develop models that enable cultural and environmental sustainability.

This conversation aims to illuminate the audience on the importance of Traditional Knowledge and Traditional Cultural Expressions as resources and sources of inspiration for the fashion industry and showcase best practices based on equity, dignity and benefit-sharing.

On the panel, we’ll be joined by:

Monica Boța-Moisin, founder of Cultural Intellectual Property Rights Initiative.
Rebecka Forsgren, project leader at Min Oðða Giron and advocate for enhanced participation of the Sámi people in Sweden.
Tara Gujadhur, co-founder of Traditional Arts and Ethnology Centre, a museum dedicated to celebrating cultural diversity in Laos.
Rituraj Dewan, co-founder of 7WEAVES Social, a collective of artisans conserving the rich local traditions of Eri textiles in India.

The Swapshop Amsterdam
Haarlemmerdijk 89, Amsterdam, Netherlands

The Swapshop is an innovative start-up that aims to extend the life-cycle of textile with two clothing swapshops in Rotterdam. And they are opening their 3rd shop on the Haarlemmerdijk 89 in Amsterdam on the 14th of April!

How does it work? Hand in your unwanted, but beautiful clothes in their shops, and receive points in return. Use these points (and an additional amount of service fee) to ‘buy’ as-good-as-new preloved clothes from their shops.

As part of the accelerator program Start-up in Residence and the European Reflow project, this start-up works in close collaboration with the Amsterdam municipality. To celebrate the opening of their third shop they have invited the alderman of sustainability (Marieke Doorninck), project leader Reflow (Roosmarie Ruigrok), and founder of the Sustainable Fashion Giftcard (Nanette Hogervorst) to talk about the critical changes that the fashion industry needs to go through in the upcoming years.

Interested in this new concept and want to know what you can do yourself to create more sustainable fashion consumption patterns? Follow the live broadcast of their opening online or book an appointment to The Swapshop Amsterdam via www.the-swapshop.com and start swapping!

East Sydney Community & Arts Centre
34 Burton Street, Darlinghurst NSW, Australia

Fashion Revolution Week is upon us and there’s no better way to celebrate and increase awareness by holding a clothes swap on Saturday April 24.

Fashion Revolution Week is the time when we come together as a global community to create a better fashion industry. It centres around the anniversary of the Rana Plaza factory collapse, which killed 1,138 people and injured many more on 24 April 2013. This year, as we mark 8 years since the tragedy, Fashion Revolution Week will focus on the interconnectedness of human rights and the rights of nature. The campaign will amplify unheard voices across the fashion supply chain and harness the creativity of our community to explore innovative and interconnected solutions.

This event will be a COVID safe event operating under the guidelines of the NSW Government and understanding that social distancing is critical to slowing down the rate of COVID-19 infection, we will adhere to the number of swappers allowed into the venue.

Because this is our first event of 2021 we are offering a special ticket price of $15 and would like all swappers to bring up to 8 amazing items that you have consciously picked from your wardrobe that you no longer wear but know others will love!

Drinks will be served on arrival.

Check-in : 3.00pm

Swap : 3.30pm

Bring: 8 items

With a focus on the cultural, business and education landscape of the fashion industry in Singapore, we wish to find out if Singaporeans relate to an urgent need for change within the system.

Have we fully grasped what it means to be sustainable beyond band-aid solutions and paying lip service?

Join our panellists on the 24th of April as we ask: Do Singaporeans care about sustainable fashion?

FASHION REVOLUTION E CITTADELLARTE-FONDAZIONE PISTOLETTO LANCIANO UNA CALL TO ACTION  PER RIDEFINIRE LA NARRATIVA E I PARADIGMI DELLA MODA SOSTENIBILE.

Fashion Revolution Italia e Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto lanciano assieme una call to action a tutte le persone che vorranno dar modo alla loro arte di manifestare la connessione profonda tra sostenibilità ambientale e sociale nella moda.

“Vogliamo dar modo alla creatività di tutti di mettersi al servizio dello sviluppo sostenibile, amplificandone l’urgenza, mettenEurope/Berlin done in luce le interconnesse dimensioni sociali e ambientali. E’ un modo originale ed inclusivo di fare comunicazione attorno al tema.” afferma Marina Spadafora, country coordinator di Fashion Revolution Italia.

Tematiche da sempre esplorate in profondità anche dagli artisti che gravitano attorno al mondo di Cittadellarte-Fondazione Pistoletto e dai designer di B.E.S.T. (Better Ethical Sustainable Think-Tank), guidati dalla filosofia risolutoria del Terzo Paradiso. Ecosistema creativo in cui il profilo dell’artista-attivista-attivatore emerge, oggi più che mai, come un atto di responsabilità necessario per il futuro. Viviamo infatti in un momento storico in cui la disconnessione tra sistemi naturali, sociali e sistema economico ha tolto al designer contemporaneo la sua funzione primaria: rispondere alle reali esigenze dell’umanità. E colmare questa disconnessione è imperativo.

Fashion Revolution e Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto invitano gli artisti a contribuire con le loro opere e idee a ridefinire insieme la narrativa e i paradigmi della moda sostenibile.

REGOLAMENTO

Le opere possono essere realizzate con qualsiasi linguaggio espressivo, ma la loro fruizione deve essere pensata per il mondo online e digitale. I contenuti dovranno essere quindi video, immagini, opere sonore, ma anche documentazione di performance ed eventi, processi partecipativi, interventi di comunità e relazionali.

  • Le immagini dovranno avere un formato png/jpg/jpeg
  • essere inferiori a 5000×5000 pixel
  • I video dovranno essere in formato mp4 o mov
  • I file devono avere un peso massimo di 128 MB

Le opere che verranno selezionate entreranno a far parte di un’esibizione virtuale che si terrà il 24 Aprile 2021 in occasione di Fashion Revolution Week Italia. Viene inoltre offerta la possibilità a 10 artisti tra quelli selezionati per l’esibizione, di partecipare a un residence Unidee dedicato ad esplorare i temi trattati dalle opere e loro possibili sviluppi insieme al Think Tank di Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T. Biella Ethical Sustainable Think Tank e Fashion Revolution. Il residence della durata di 5 giorni si svolgerà nella seconda metà del 2021 a Cittadellarte. Le spese di partecipazione e le spese di alloggio (mezza pensione) saranno coperte. Il residence avrà formato discorsivo, ed offrirà momenti di formazione e di esperienza con la partecipazione di esperti del mondo dell’arte impegnata nella trasformazione sociale e della moda sostenibile, della manifattura, della filosofia, delle politiche internazionali e dell’attivismo.

COME PARTECIPARE

E’ possibile inviare la propria candidatura, con una breve descrizione scritta, entro  il 10 Marzo 2021 a italy@fashionrevolution.org
Le opere verranno selezionate da un comitato composto da Michelangelo Pistoletto, Paolo Naldini, Olga Pirazzi (project manager FASHION B.E.S.T. – Fondazione Pistoletto) , Juan Sandoval (direttore ufficio arte di Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto), Marina Spadafora (country coordinator Fashion Revolution Italia), Stella Stone e il Team di Fashion Revolution Italia.

In occasione di Fashion Revolution Week 2021, si inaugura il 24 aprile 2021 alle ore 18:30 ARTivism, mostra digitale frutto della call to action e concorso lanciati da Fashion Revolution Italia e Fondazione Pistoletto a dicembre 2020 per ispirare artisti e creativi a dar voce e forma, attraverso l’arte, alla giustizia sociale e ambientale. Quaranta opere selezionate saranno visitabili nello spazio digitale Ikonospace fino a fine Ottobre 2021, in un percorso curato da Stella Stone. Inoltre per i primi 10 finalisti, annunciati il giorno dell’inaugurazione durante un vernissage digitale su Zoom e live anche sulla pagina Facebook di Fashion Revolution Italia, è previsto un in-house residence a Cittadellarte a Biella sponsorizzato da Fondazione Pistoletto.

Il residence Unidee sarà dedicato all’approfondimento dei temi trattati dai lavori selezionati e i loro possibili sviluppi insieme al Think Tank di Cittadellarte Fashion B.E.S.T. Biella Ethical Sustainable Think Tank e Fashion Revolution.
Il residence avrà una durata di cinque giorni, si svolgerà nella seconda metà del 2021 a Cittadellarte e le spese di partecipazione e le spese di alloggio (mezza pensione) saranno coperte. Al termine del programma è previsto un momento in cui gli organizzatori potranno condividere l’esperienza pubblicamente sui propri account media.
Questa opportunità offrirà momenti di formazione, di discussione e di esperienza con la partecipazione di esperti del mondo dell’arte come mezzo di trasformazione sociale e della moda sostenibile, della manifattura, della filosofia, delle politiche internazionali e dell’attivismo. Verranno creati eventi in cui tutti i partecipanti al concorso potranno collegarsi virtualmente e condividere i workshops del residence e gli interventi degli specialisti.

La selezione è avvenuta tra più di 90 artisti che hanno risposto all’iniziativa con opere originali. Una commissione tecnica composta da Paolo Naldini (CEO & director Cittadellarte- Fondazione Pistoletto), Olga Pirazzi (project manager Fashion B.E.S.T. – Fondazione Pistoletto), Juan Estefan Sandoval (direttore Ufficio Arte – Fondazione Pistoletto) e Marina Spadafora (country coordinator – Fashion Revolution Italia) di tutti i progetti in gara ha valutato la coerenza semantica, l’originalità, la qualità tecnica, la potenziale capacità di ispirare attivismo sociale, la resa estetica per la fruibilità digitale e il valore manifestato come soluzione per il sistema moda.

L’invito di Fashion Revolution Italia e Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto ad esprimersi in totale libertà per ridefinire insieme la narrativa e i paradigmi della moda sostenibile ha ispirato opere rilevanti e riflessioni utili a capire come strutturare insieme un presente più costruttivo, dove all’ispirazione deve seguire con urgenza un’azione collettiva.

“Ragazzi di liceo e artisti affermati a livello internazionale, studenti di fashion design e collettivi attivisti canadesi, e tutti voi che numerosi e unici avete partecipato, grazie! Abbiamo viaggiato attraverso gli orizzonti dei vostri progetti, tatuaggi sulla seconda pelle dell’umanità, la moda. Abbiamo visto i nostri sogni e bisogni, incubi e aneliti nelle vostre opere. E ora? Se il sistema dell’arte può dare a queste ricerche un contributo per impressionare l’immaginario collettivo, la vera sfida sta nella pratica che vi aspetta fuori dallo studio o dall’atelier o dalla galleria”, afferma Paolo Naldini. “È mettersi in gioco, nel campo del fashion o in ogni altro possibile settore, per azionare questi dispositivi potenti che avete creato. È nei contesti in cui abitate e lavorate, nelle comunità di pratica in cui trascorrete la vostra vita, che l’artivismo produce trasformazione sociale. È lì che l’opera, opera”.

Trasformazione sociale e interdipendenza di dimensioni di sostenibilità sociale e ambientale che, come sottolinea Marina Spadafora, sono evidenti nelle espressioni artistiche presentate, manifesto di una società pronta ad un cambio di direzione per riportare i reali interessi dell’uomo e del pianeta al centro del nostro operato.

“In un momento di incertezza e tensione sociale e personale che interessa tutta l’umanità”, sostiene Marina Spadafora, “abbiamo deciso di parlare di sostenibilità attraverso l’espressione artistica. L’arte e la creatività sono espressione dell’anima, con Artivism questa espressione diventa attiva per esprimere il significato personale di sostenibilità. Le opere che abbiamo ricevuto parlano, attraverso immagini, colori e suoni, dell’anelito personale e unico degli artisti alla giustizia ambientale e sociale, valori che risultano profondamente interconnessi nelle opere presentate”.

Gli “ARTivists” in mostra diventano dunque un mezzo, con le loro opere, per ispirare noi tutti a catalizzare cambiamento positivo attraverso le nostre azioni. Come spiega Stella Stone, curatrice della mostra, “per la prima edizione di ARTivism abbiamo selezionato opere eterogenee che, con approcci culturali diversi, messaggi morali ed etici, espressioni digitali ed artigiane, ci chiamano all’azione. Abbiamo voluto dare priorità alla qualità e alla rappresentazione della diversità. Crediamo che ogni singolo artista selezionato sia manifesto di una verità capace di innescare curiosità e dialogo, il primo passo per un cambiamento collettivo”.

Learn More About K.I.S.S:
Keep It Sacred Sister (K.I.S.S.) is a fabulous charity that helps support & bring resources to rape victims. 1 in 6 women become survivors of sexual abuse, but only 20% come forward for help. K.I.S.S. exists to bring connection to survivors through the distribution of care kits and long-term resources for healing. Every dollar raised will be used to fund their care kits, build their mobile app, and launch their K.I.S.S. Campus Safety Program. Beyond raising money through donations, they also have a 1:1 online boutique panty store to support their sisters. K.I.S.S. believes every survivor deserves to heal. www.keepitsacredsister.org.
