A Festival Conference
at The Plant•
Fri, Apr 27 6:30-8:30 - Sat, Apr 28, 2 PM - 10 PM:

In this Friday Evening Amuse Bouche panel discussion and Saturday daylong festival event, we’ll re-think:  The history of big cotton in NC - from the slave ship to the shores of China.  The industrial agricultural system.  The ills of "fast fashion."  Global industry and the economics of extraction.  Conventional fibers and textiles.  Social justice.   The worldwide effects of garment disposal.  Who and what is beautiful?  Deep culture versus personal style. We’ll also dive into current sustainable fiber endeavors  - such as hemp.  We will engage in rethinking fashion by considering the use of upcycled, recycled and local materials. We’ll also shine a light on vendors and designers doing good work on this front - across our world and right here at home!
