A talk presented by RMIT’s Contemporary Art & Social Transformation (CAST) Research Group and RMIT Social Innovation Hub.
Considerations of ‘sustainable fashion’ often stops at material and technical approaches. In this panel conversation we explore the concept of sustainable fashion in a more holistic way – how ‘sustainability’ is not only linked to the environment, but the sustainability of culture, heritage and creative work. From merging traditional techniques with contemporary design, to innovative ways of keeping creative work viable in an insecure, Covid-normal world, our speakers explore the connections between culture, creativity and sustainability.
CAST is a hub for critical thinking, collaboration and the exchange of ideas, knowledge dissemination, practice-led artistic research and socially-engaged art practice. CAST engages on local and international levels by collaborating with practitioners, communities, industry, and government partner.
