'Sisters Are Doing It For The Future' has an amazing line-up of singers, panel discussions and comedy.
The brainchild of Geraldine Carton and Taz Kelleher, Sustainable Fashion Dublin have been working tirelessly throughout 2019 and 2020 on all different types of events around sustainability and fashion.
Previously the pair have hosted charity shop crawls (which we can vouch for, they’re fantastic), swap shops, documentary screenings as well as workshops teaching people how to up-cycle, sew and mend the clothes they already own.
International Women’s Day is just around the corner and the duo have an incredible event lined up for it. ‘Sisters Are Doing It For The Future’ is their biggest event yet with an amazing line-up of singers, panel discussions and comedy.
Here’s everything you need to know.
Throughout the day there will be panel discussions specifically centred around the fashion industry and how it affects women. 80% of workers in garment factories are women and most of them are not paid a living wage.
Discussing this topic will be a range of industry experts including Heather Barnes (Consultant at The Ethical Fashion Initiative), Rosemarie Kamana (Artist & Sustainable Fashion Designer) and CarrieAnn Moran (Sustainability Manager at NCBI Retail).
To keep you entertained and inspired throughout the day there will be a variety of talented performers. All will be addressing the topics, taboos, trials and tribulations facing modern Irish women through their performances.
Expect to see Molly Sterling, Emma Doran, Fionnuala Jones, CMAT and many more on the day!
Treats will be provided by female-run health snack company Nutshed and drinks will be provided by Roe&Co.
It’s also important to note that 10% of all ticket sales (which are €15 each) are going towards The Dublin Rape Crisis Centre, which will support the fantastic work they do supporting women affected by sexual violence.
The event is taking place on March 8th in The Tara Building from 2-5pm.
Make sure you grab your tickets sooner rather than later as it’s sure to sell out.
