Global Fashioning Assembly 2022 programme

The GFA22 programme is live 

The Global Fashioning Assembly is an international 3-day online event that follows the sun around the world from Friday 20 October 2022 at 02:00am UTC till Sunday 23 October 2022 at 11:00pm UTC. The programme offers an immersion into the pluriverse of fashion. As a coalitional gathering beyond institutional, disciplinary and geographical boundaries, it aims to decentralise knowledge creation and sharing regarding fashion. 

Join twelve coalitions from around the world that will share activities including interviews, panel discussions, a meme workshop, weaving and design studio visits, exhibition talks, a ritual, films, market visits, and more. Each offering is underpinned by the urgent need to decolonise the fashion system focusing on resilience, resistance and diversity through local attention, activations and celebrations.

Friday 21 October 2022 begins with five local fashioning coalitions from Aotearoa (New Zealand), Kazakhstan, Pakistan, South-Africa and Kenya, sharing ways of learning, knowing and doing through talks, films, workshops and debates that move from museum collections to classrooms, and from artisan knowledges and heritages to decolonial creative practices.

Saturday 22 October 2022 welcomes five local fashioning research collectives and decolonial projects from Croatia, the Netherlands, Egypt, Morocco and Wales. They will share ways of remembering, caring and questioning with talks, films and workshops that move from workwear and a cultivating flax project, to fashion archives and decolonising design spaces.

Sunday 23 October 2022 ends with four local fashioning collectives from Brazil, Ghana, USA, and Peru, sharing ways of cultivating, reflecting and celebrating through talks, films, performance and workshops that move from decolonial fashion practices and museum interventions, to rethinking fashion knowledge forms and craftsmanship.

Each coalition hosts the Global Fashioning Assembly for two hours, offering an opportunity to share their local stories, practices and struggles to a global audience.

Sharing Councils

In-between the hosting sessions are one-hour Sharing Councils for participants to share, reflect, listen and encourage to be deeply present to each other, to listen deeply and speak with each other, rather than speak at each other. Underpinning all aspects of the GFA22 is the work of building coalitional consciousness, and creating discourses regarding fashioning that are affirmative, regenerative and diverse.

Register on Eventbrite. All hosting programmes will be accessible through one ZOOM link, so you can join any event at any time and contribute to the 1-hour Sharing Councils in between.
