Threading the Needle: the Connection between Clothing and Climate
Did you know that what we wear has a huge impact on the planet and on the people who make our clothes? Join us for an inspiring evening at the Climate Action Museum to learn more about this critical issue and how you can be part of the global movement to build a better, fairer clothing industry.
Co-hosted in collaboration with local non-profits Chicago Fair Trade and Empowerment Collective, the event will feature delicious lite bites and drinks, interactive exhibits and games, music, live artistic performances, and short informative talks, with plenty of time to browse the museum and meet and mingle with other guests.
Special guests will include Chicago broadcasting legend Jerome McDonnell, formerly of WBEZ’s Worldview, and global human rights advocate Nasreen Sheikh, a social entrepreneur and former garment worker. Lucky Plush Productions will also share an excerpt from Right Here, created by Melinda Jean Myers in collaboration with Lucky Plush ensemble members and composer/musician Lex Leto. This dance-theater-rock-musical explores how the body holds opposing states of motivation and apathy, abundance and loss, and hope and despair during a climate crisis.
Don’t miss this opportunity to be a part of an event that combines education, inspiration, and action to address one of the most pressing issues of our time. Book your earlybird ticket for just $19 today and become a catalyst for positive change for our planet!
