We will explore our potential for creativity and how perceptions can contribute to creating spaces where people and ideas thrive.
It’s about power. It’s about choice. It’s about co-creating the world that we want to live in.
**Proceeds from this workshop will go to support Akamae in co-creating with refugee artisans, and Fashion Revolution activities for a sustainable fashion movement in Thailand and beyond.
Akamae is an ethical fashion brand with a unique approach. They connects creative designers and refugee artisans to create a future fashion industry that values our individual choices. In connecting people through fashion, they create a space of mutual empowerment and discover that magic lies in this connection. The result is undeniably original, ethically-sourced, and fashion-forward capsule collections.
As the founder of Akamae and the Co-creation Fashion Movement, Cara Boccieri lives with remote refugee communities in Mae Hong Son, Thailand. Her work focuses on connecting creatives and refugee artisans to co-create change in the fashion industry. Cara is unique in the world of ethical fashion in that her background lies strongly in the refugee sector. After completing her M.A. from the United Nations University in ‘International Peace & Conflict Resolution’ she made a name for herself with her unprecedented research on cultivating self-reliance in refugee settlements. Cara’s research, the basis for Akamae, shifts us away from our global model of humanitarian aid, dependency and lack. Through a model of human connection, abundance and worthiness, Akamae cultivates creative spaces where people thrive.
