Creative Sectors: Sustainable Fashion and Textile Industry (Evening)

Join us for an evening all about sustainable fashions and textiles in partnership with Creative Edinburgh.

What to expect from this event

Partnering with Creative Edinburgh, we will focus on helping freelancers understand what opportunities exist in the world of sustainable fashion and textiles. Who are the teams who work behind the scenes at Scotland’s and Edinburgh’s organisations dedicated to working in the area of fashion and textiles? What are the main opportunities that they offer to freelance creatives and how do they contribute to Edinburgh’s creative community? Come along to learn what else you need to know as a creative practitioner looking for your next craft/fashion project. The event is designed for early to mid-level career practitioners.
