Nature of the Project Reach
This project is open to members of the Kensington-Cedar Cottage neighbourhood in Vancouver and beyond!
Take part in the workshop and...
- Have your photo taken & tell us about your outfit. Don’t worry - every piece of clothing has a story, however small!
- Write or draw your personal clothing memories & add them to the Clotheslines archive
- Bring in an item (or items) of clothing to give away, and tag them with a story or memory. They’ll become part of the Community-sourced Closet & the clothing swap at the end of the day!
- Meet your neighbours!
