Can we change our behaviours to lessen the impacts of the fashion industry on both people and the environment? 

The fashion industry is having a massive impact on the environment. Making clothes creates 10% of our carbon emissions across the globe. Production uses huge amounts of water, and the chemicals involved pollute rivers and streams.

Join us for a fun, practical evening about sustainable fashion. Learn ways of mending or refashioning clothes, and get top tips on how to be greener in our clothing choices with mini-workshops, drop-in activities and more.

Visit the Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology galleries after-hours. View their latest exhibition COLOUR: Art, Science and Power  and enjoy activities inspired by the themes of the exhibition. 

An incredibly exciting chance to experience the museum after hours and explore Defaced! Money, Power, Conflict, whilst enjoying drop-in creative workshops, live performances, and drinks.
