Conversations on Decoloniality & Fashion
4th of September 2021 at 20:00:00
The Conversations on Decoloniality & Fashion is a monthly online series that seeks to expand our collective understanding of decoloniality and its convergence with the field of fashion. Each first Saturday of the month, 8-9pm GMT, a ninety minute conversation is organised around a selected reading to redefine the contemporary fashion system from a decolonial perspective. As a virtual space beyond institutions, we experiment with other ways of knowledge-production and sharing in regard to fashion – through conversation, through the communal, and through a broad diversity of voices (http://rcdfashion.wordpress.com/conversations/ )
