MAD Windows: Inside Stories
The 'MAD Windows' is a place for sharing experiences, know-how and interactions. For Inside Stories, we selected 19 actors of change, professionals acting and reflecting on pressing issues of our society in transition through their design- and other creative skills. Via a series of livestream sessions, they'll share their stories, know-how and insights through a talk or workshop.
Talk 'Upcycling as a creative method'
As the fast-fashion is being questionned and is slowly trying to move towards more sustainability, it still leaves behind tons of not wanted clothes. We are rising to this challenge to bring these garments back in the loop. Upcycling means that we do a minimal intervention on the textile”waste” to turn it into something more valuable. By pairing with local textile industries we are looking for solutions to optimize this process and to propose new applications to these new textiles.
