Two Local Wisdom Photo Shoots in the San Francisco Bay Area
July 2, 2012 by renee
An ongoing research project of CSF member Kate Fletcher, Local Wisdom explores the ‘Craft of Use’ and offers a vision of a new type of prosperity in fashion that is not based on buying and selling more garments.
The project gathers stories and images of the public at community photo shoots where they share how they have used particular garments in ways that save resources and give them satisfaction.
Documenting these provides a platform for such practices to flourish and inspire other users as well as the design and production community.
The project calls on you to share your stories with us and have your photo taken wearing your piece.
Two of these photo shoots are taking place this July in California. Tell your West coast friends! And watch the Local Wisdom site for images and stories from the day.
