Please join us for a special RSA Leicester event held in association with the RSA’s Make Fashion Circular research team and De Montfort University.
Our love of fashion fuels a global industry, employing millions around the world. But this is currently a system which drives environmental destruction, pollution and waste.
The RSA is partnering with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation as part of the Make Fashion Circular Initiative to inspire and mobilise designers to transform the fashion system, using circular economy principles.
Senior RSA Researcher, Josie Warden, will tell us more about this exciting and important new project. Her presentation will be followed by Q&A and discussion.
We’ll then hear from Dr Claire Lerpiniere on Stories of Textiles and the Circular Economy, and Dr Nicola Thomas on Can Circular Fashion Leverage Systemic Change in the Global Fashion System?
Dr Chetna Prajapati will be joining us to talk on Enzymes: Old tools, new possibilities.
We have time for one or two additional short contributions. If you have a project or an idea on this theme which you think would benefit from being shared with the RSA Fellowship at this event, please get in touch with Andrew Reeves [email protected] by 4th October.
Light refreshments will be provided, and there’ll be time for informal networking at the beginning and end of the evening.
Please book your place here using the link above. This event is free to attend and open to all, including Fellows, friends, and colleagues interested in supporting the work of the RSA.
If you have any access requirements or require any reasonable adjustments, please let the team know: [email protected]. Please also let us know if you have any dietary requirements or severe allergies.
