A partnership project between Centre for Sustainable Fashion and Waltham Forest Council: ‘Making for Change’
‘Making for Change: Waltham Forest’ is a partnership project developed between London College of Fashion (LCF) and Waltham Forest Council for London Borough of Culture 2019 and the Great Place scheme. Led by Dr Francesco Mazzarella (Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at Centre for Sustainable Fashion, UAL), ‘Making for Change: Waltham Forest’ uses fashion activism and making as catalysts for positive change in the borough, with the aim to activate long-term legacies.
This showcase invites the visitor to experience the outcomes of the project’s activities in education, manufacturing, and community engagement. The project has contributed to developing makers’ skills and career pathways, nurturing a culture of fellowship, and activating radical change locally. As one of the legacies of the project, a fashion hub has been established in a formerly disused supermarket, providing affordable workspace and support for local businesses, flexible gallery space and delivering shared services for the borough.
