Platform For Film is back! Join us on Sunday 27th November for 'Fashion Exposed', where we are very proud to be working alongside fashion reuse and international development heroes TRAID and groundbreaking documentary makers Rainbow Collective to bring you a very special day and evening of film & discussion all around consumption, textile production and conditions for garment workers.
We'll be screening the short films made by garment workers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, documenting the living and working conditions they endure making clothes for our high streets. Funded by TRAID and mentored by Rainbow Collective, these films offer crucial insight into the lives of garment workers.
The space at Platform will also become a temporary exhibition by Rainbow Collective of photography from this film project, called the 'Citizen Journalist' project.
This will be the final day of TRAID's #secondhandfirstweek, (check it out 👉👉 http://www.traid.org.uk/secondhandfirst-week-2016/) so please bring along your unwanted clothes for the clothes bank and their pledge to commit to sourcing second-hand clothes rather than buying new! 👚👕👗👠👘
Free entry, BYOB, snacks provided. Join the conversation about sustainable fashion.
