Hack Your Wardrobe: A Sustainable and Accessible Clothing Workshop

Hosted by The Disability Collective

The Disability Collective and Canadian Green Alliance are thrilled to host Hack Your Wardrobe: A Sustainable and Accessible Clothing Workshop, led by Sky Cubacub of Rebirth Garments! Join us on Earth Day to take part in this interactive event.

How do you hack your wardrobe to make it fully celebrate the intersection of all of your identities? We will explore the idea of Radical Visibility, a Disabled Queer dress reform movement based on highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Sky will be doing interactive draping demos using a no sew method of designing in our own closets to promote creativity and imagination, breaking us out of the boxes that the fashion industry has told us to be in.

Please help us increase accessibility to this workshop by participating in our sliding scale pricing options. We encourage you to truly consider what you are able to pay for this event. By choosing to pay more, you will be supporting reduced prices for others.

Please note: We highly encourage folks who identify as Black, Indigenous, People of Colour, 2LGBTQIA+, and/or Disabled to choose their price point regardless of financial status.

Organizations

The Disability Collective

The Disability Collective is a community of disabled artists dedicated to celebrating and showcasing disability in the arts. TDC strives to de-stigmatize disability and challenge perceptions of what disability looks like through promoting disabled artists in a variety of forms, including live performances, virtual showcases, visual art shows, readings, and more. We believe that disability can be defined in many ways, including physical impairments, mental health conditions, emotional disabilities, sensory disabilities, cognitive​ challenges, and chronic illnesses.
