Complicating solidarity: building cultures of care and self criticality in fashion

Complicating solidarity: building cultures of care and self criticality in fashion Friday April 6 11am –12pm. Fashion Studio S301. All Welcome.

Please Join us in welcoming Carmella Farahbakhsh from South House to start a conversation about the how to make NSCADs Fashion Area a safer place to create and share. They will explore ideas such as perfectionism as a barrier to cultivating care based space, examining the roots of performative ally-ship, and the intersections of self-care and building emotional skills around anti-oppression practice.

Light snacks and beverages will be provided!

Carmella is approaching this dialogue from their work at South House as well as a creative person rather than from a fashion perspective.

They invite your questions and suggestions ahead of this discussion and can be reached at Carmella Farahbakhsh <volunteer@southhousehalifax.ca>
