The 2019 Gala will be an intimate gathering to celebrate our regional textile culture through hands-on activities and storytelling, as well as student interpretations of climate beneficial clothing from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), and the emergence of the 2019 Fibershed Knitalong. Teju will lead a workshop on mapping where our clothes come from and collective accountability.
Our Climate Voices and Loam will be organizing Community Call-In: Storytelling to Reimagine & Regenerate as part of a nationwide project to inspire creative climate storytelling and impactful climate action.
During our evening story share, urban geographer and inclusive climate justice advocate Teju Adisa-Farrar and filmmaker and photojournalist Michael Estrada will share their personal climate stories. Through braiding together insight on collective action with tangible tools for creating narratives that inspire change, this story share will be a special opportunity to learn from young climate activists about what ethical storytelling looks like in practice.
