Sustainable Practice / Creative Solutions: A Costume Pedagogy Workshop

Last year, we considered the sustainability of our own practice, using “boundary thinking” to explore healthier relationships around teaching, design, and production.


This year, we investigate global aspects of sustainability:

  • What are the ethical + ecological implications of costume production?

  • As costumers and as educators, what are our responsibilities to climate justice and social justice? 

  • How can academic spaces work as laboratories for encouraging industry change towards “greening” our costume practice?


Save the Dates: 

  • May 20 & 21 (1:00-4:00pm ET)

    • ReDressing the Narrative- presentations and breakout rooms

  • May 22-June 3 (various times)

    • Speciality Sessions Weeks - the opportunity to lead your own discussion and share scholarship 

  • June 3 & 4 (1:00-4:00pm ET)

    • ATCA convening of Working Groups and community building


Registration information will be available in April. As always, the workshops continue to center the diverse yet costume-specific needs of this community. With institutional support from the University of Michigan, they remain free of charge and hosted on zoom.
