LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is a new multidisciplinary social design project based around traditional craft techniques and participation of particularly elderly. The project is developed in context of the FASHIONCLASH Festival 2016 theme Heritage and will take place at Centre Céramique, Coffeelovers and Plein 1992 in Maastricht.

 In the project the process is as important as the end result. This process of handicrafting within a team contributes to encounter, dialogue and sharing of knowledge. The project brings together the arts and crafts of fashion and textile design with the tangible and intangible heritage of our popular culture.

Designers Floor Nijdeken, Jolijn Fiddelaers of IXX Creates and Maartje Boer and Suzanne Vaessen of STRIKKS will work in teams with experienced craft buddies and elderly participnats with purpose to co-create new textile designs. The public space of Centre Céramique will temporary be transformed into a pop-up workshop where all teams will work together.

The final presentation of the project will take place June 30 – July 3 during FASHIONCLASH Festival at Plein 1992, which will be temporarily transformed into a craft square. Everyone is invited to observe but also to take part with one of the teams and co-create!

LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is an initiative of FASHIONCLASH in cooperation with Tout Maastricht. LET’S (AD)DRESS THE PEOPLE! is made possible thanks to generous support by Fonds voor Cultuurparticipatie, Gemeente Maastricht, Stichting Elisabeth Strouven, Coffeelovers and Centre Céramique.
