Commune at Craft Cubed is a one-day event for people to share ideas on leading a more sustainable life. The event includes a clothes exchange, DIY workshops, industry talks and organic soup all day long. All completely for free!
Commune at Craft Cubed recognises the growing importance of sustainability within design and contemporary lifestyles.
Curator Lynda Roberts is bringing together designers and sustainability experts to showcase the growing importance of sustainability within design practice both now and in the future.
“We’re trying to create an opportunity where people can discuss the role sustainability plays in the way we view the world, and ultimately inspire people with new ideas,” she says.
Kirsteene Phelan (Etsy), Lucy Feagins (The Design Files), Janice Breen-Burns (VoxFrock/former The Age Fashion Editor) and Greg Climer (Parsons New School, New York) will all be participating in speaker forums.
Also included in the programme are simple and free ways for everyone to become a little more sustainable by buying local from the Makers Market, DIY bike maintenance and clothing mending workshops; as well as a massive clothing exchange.
Bookings for the clothing exchange and repair workshops are essential. Email firstname.lastname@example.org
