Creative Inverclyde at The New York Times Climate Hub. Creative Ignition: Art and Fashion, a Spark for Change
Clothing accounts for around 12 percent of emissions and is the world’s second-largest industrial polluter. But sustainable fashion can be a force for good. Join Creative Inverclyde co-founder and artist Craig Black for a live art performance and fashion show, created by two leading U.K. businesses in sustainable fashion, ACS Clothing and Hirestreet. Held among Es Devlin’s immersive forest setting, Mr. Black will perform his acrylic fusion paint process live over large globe-like spheres, engaging with the crowd as a sustainable fashion show emerges from the audience. Upbeat, bright, hopeful and catalytic, this formidable live act is set to be a must-see event.
On the night, we're having a recycled/upcycled clothing swap. You're welcome to bring a good-quality, freshly laundered and pressed item with you to exchange at the sustainable clothes swap bar.
