Part of Arcade East’s 2019 Design & Politics season, the project I WANNA BE ME – I WANNA BE (E)U [2] is aimed at projecting personal identities through fashion, in times of economic and ecological uncertainties.

Join us for an evening of interactive live art performances – inspired by catwalks we’ll be focusing on self-expression, making and performing. Through these performances we’ll respond to the current issues of fast-fashion, self-identity, global trade, waste and the social impacts of Brexit on the fashion design, and manufacturing businesses.

Creating a space for participants to collectively explore issues of fashion design and politics broadening out from the EU into personal politics throughout the performative dinner.

Originally formed by Alma Tischlerwood and Rosemary Cronin, from international artist collective ‘Foreign Investments’ as part of the ‘Making for Change: Waltham Forest’ project led by Dr Francesco Mazzarella.
