Join a workshop

In the past we’ve run online Stage 1 World-writing and Stage 2 prototyping workshops

There aren’t any further workshops planned at present, but if you sign up to the mailing list you’ll be the first to hear about upcoming events.

Organise a workshop

We invite people to devise and run their own affiliated Fashion Fictions activities – whether in educational, community or professional contexts – in order to spread the word and diversify contributions to the central Fashion Fictions project.

If you’d like to adapt the Fashion Fictions materials to support participatory speculation activities in spheres other than fashion, please visit the Adapting Fashion Fictions page.

Spread the word

Fashion Fictions thrives on participation: the more people that get involved, the more diverse the ideas we can generate and the stronger we become as a community working for change.

Can you help us spread the word by joining the Fashion Fictions ‘street team’? You’ll receive a set of eight postcards to pass on. Will you hand them directly to friends? Post them on community noticeboards? Sneak them into unexpected locations?

If you’re active on social media, we encourage you to share images of your postcards ‘in the wild’ using the hashtag #FashionFictions.

Requests are very welcome from anywhere in the world! How many people can we reach together?
