Upper Canada Fibreshed Round Table 2018 - Farm to Fashion Conference

Wed Aug 22, 2018, Orillia, ON

The Upper Canada Fibreshed is hosting a day-long, collaborative and interactive Farm-Fashion event, Wednesday August 22nd 2018, bringing together producers, buyers and stakeholders to identify community needs, address challenges and create a strategy for rejuvenating Ontario's natural textile value-chain.

This Round Table is open to all that are curious about a farm-to-fashion movement based on ecological farming practices, and a soil-to-soil ethos.

This event is followed by a screening of award winning Canadian documentary, River Blue.

Film description: Can Fashion Save the Planet?

This award-winning documentary spans the globe to uncover the dirty secret behind the manufacturing of our blue jeans. Narrated by clean water supporter Jason Priestley, RiverBlue follows international river conservationist, Mark Angelo, on a journey that uncovers the dark side of the fashion industry. Speaking with fashion designers and water protectors world-wide, RIVERBLUE reveals stunning and shocking images that truly change the way we look at how our clothing is made. This groundbreaking documentary examines the destruction of our rivers, its effect on humanity, and the solutions that inspire hope for a sustainable future. An exquisitely crafted, fascinating, emotional and moving documentary turned global agent for change.

Join us for a screening of this film with a short presentation by the Upper Canada Fibreshed about local textile communities organizing for change.
