Join the T-REX Project workshops from Aalto University at the Heureka Science Center in Finland

From 10 June until 16 August, Aalto University will be offering an interactive, hands-on workshop activity at the Heureka Science Center in Vantaa, Finland as part of their new exhibition ‘DRESSCODE: Sustainable’.
Back to overview

‘Actionable stories – Why do I upcycle/recycle?’ is one of the planned citizen engagement activities for the T-REX project.

The workshop will dive into the realm of end-of-life garments and explore the end (and a fresh start) of the garment’s journey. Participants will get to decide which garments can be upcycled and which ones are ready for recycling, all while creating their own story tags for the garments. Through this, they can make their reflective stories part of the display that others can learn from.

The workshop is designed by doctoral researcher Elina Lewe and designer/research associate Jamila Juzer Siamwalla.
