In 2018, when we're building utopia with #nomoneynoborders, what are you doing?? Who is keeping you company? And what are you wearing?

A launch party for PERFORM/TRANSFORM: The World's Fair 2018. Culminating in a week-long exhibition in June, the World’s Fair brings people together to build utopia.

Come discuss, dance, and live your dreams~*

7:30PM «Designing Utopia» panel discussion with:
♥ Jessica Gorse:::Fertile Design
Fertile Design proposes a material exploration and implementation of sustainable design and biodegradable matter. Looking into the future of sustainably designed objects, we propose to create a closed circuit system of design that is functional and fertile. We are interested in designing objects that hold space through decay, and in it’s completion, reactivate, repurpose, and revitalize the space in which they were abandoned.

♥ Sky Cubacub:::Rebirth Garments
Rebirth Garments challenges mainstream beauty standards that are sizest, ableist, and conform to the gender binary. Instead, we maintain the notion of Radical Visibility, a movement based on claiming our bodies and, through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs, highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Through Radical Visibility, we refuse to assimilate and can create a QueerCrip dress reform movement. [rebirthgarments.com]

♥ Michael Tekhen Strode:::The Kola Nut Collaborative
The Kola Nut Collaborative is a mutual support network of people engaged in reciprocal exchange of services, skills, and goods through a timebank where the currency is an hour of time for everyone.
