This topic will feature conversations between creatives that explore the role of fashion in informing identity. From globalization of local fashion to the role fashion plays in shifting perceptions of a country or a people; from using fashion design to collectively re-imagine and/or define national identity to reclaiming local design to further self-determination, creatives from all over the world will shed light on the true impact of the fashion industry.

With: Sunny Dolat, The Nest (Kenya), Linda Franco and Antonio Rodriguez, Machina (Mexique), Pablo  Londono Sarria, This is Sweden (Sweden) and Matthew “Tayo” Rugamba, House of Tayo (Rwanda).
Moderator: Vanessa Rosales, author (Colombia).

Admission free. In English.

Over twenty artists from seven different countries (South Africa, Colombia, Kenya, Mexico, Rwanda, Zambia and Sweden) present pieces in the spaces of the Swedish Institute in Paris during April 10-14 2019. Hosts of the “Créateurs en mouvement” festival, they came together to work on Sweden@, a project initiated by the Institute in 2013 whose aim is to gather various industry players around the fundamental role of creatives in the development of our societies. Reciprocity and co-creation between the participating countries has formed a network of creatives that goes beyond borders. What’s on: exhibition, workshops, talks… Discover the programme of the festival
