This exhibition looks at rethinking our relationship to textiles in the context of a global climate crises. Over the last few decades, we have become increasingly reliant on disposable garments and textiles; an industry whose catastrophic effects are manifested in poor labour conditions, increasing non-recyclable waste and the production of toxins and chemicals that enter into our natural systems.
The project and exhibition empowers youth to interrupt the inevitability of these systems and processes. Working within a local context, what role do youth have in raising awareness of these problems, while learning practical skills that help them begin to manifest the change they imagine?
