‘Shopping Bags’: a song about the Rana Plaza tragedy3 years ago
Katie from Zinnia Blue has been working on a side project during 2013 and 2014 called The Worthy Skirmishes, with fellow musician Sarah Taylor from The Taylor Project, and Textile Artist based in Mumbai, Susie Vickery.
Susie has joined them in the development of a beautiful and moving video clip for one of their songs ‘Shopping Bags’ which honors the women who were the majority of 1,129 victims killed and over 2,515 injured in the Bangladesh Factory Collapse on April 24, 2013.
The song and film clip also aim to inspire reflection on our own roles, as consumers in the global supply chain, in the lead up to tragedy.
Video launch event on April 24 is at Bar Nancy, 61 High St Northcote, Melbourne Australia, 7pm. It features a fundraising fashion swap, live music, fashion parade and an art installation. Come along!
