Join us for the first Fashion Revolution event in Bahrain, marked by the screening of The True Cost, a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing?
Location and Timing:
Words Bookstore Cafe – Palm Square, Budaiya Highway
6.00 – 6.30pm: Doors Open
6.30 – 8.00pm: The True Cost Screening
Feel free to stay and chat after the screening, enjoy some refreshments from the cafe, and take part in the Clothes Swap.
Come with an open mind, a piece of clothing you are willing to swap, and the “story” behind that piece of clothing written down on a small piece of paper.
The story can be as simple as a favorite memory in that item, who bought you the item, how you came across it, etc. The idea is that the garment has value and should be cared for as such by its next owner.
All these items will be on display throughout the event for anyone to come by and swap out their special item for yours.
We look forward to seeing you, reading the story behind your garment, and introducing Fashion Revolution with the screening of The True Cost!
Get ready to think about #WhoMadeMyClothes
