Sky Cubacub will discuss their manifesto with Kelly Fritsch, Assistant Professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Carleton University. Members of the Carleton community will model examples of Sky’s Rebirth Garments.
As Sky writes, “we maintain the notion of Radical Visibility, a movement based on claiming our bodies and, through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs, highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Through Radical Visibility, we refuse to assimilate and can create a Queer and Disabled dress reform movement.”
Admission is free and everyone is welcome! Light refreshments will be provided.
