The Power of Place
How does the power of place influence our sustainability practice, weaving itself into our behaviour, attitudes, motivations, knowledge, connections, community, creativity?
To celebrate the #SustFashScotland community’s inspiring sustainability practice, progress, people, and places in 2022, we are inviting YOU to submit visual and/or written content about your changemaking work, and your perspective on the power of place in sustainable fashion and textiles in Scotland.
When we think of ‘place’, we think of the uniqueness of geographic locations, online spaces, specific venues or points in time, nature, heritage and history, culture, wellbeing, communities, people, and the relationship between these and our sustainability practice. We look forward to understanding what emerges within you when thinking about ‘place’.
Submissions are welcomed from fashion activists, designers, business owners, academics, students, home sewers, crafters and more. If you are based in Scotland and work in or are interested in sustainable fashion and textiles - we want to hear from you.
We're looking for contributions from across Scotland themed around sustainability in fashion from your unique perspective. We invite any format that can be published in a print and digital magazine. This could include: images of your design/textiles work, photography, illustrations, sketchbook work, organisation bios, essays/poetry/interviews/written texts (50-600 words), and more.
You can read issues 1 and 2 of the SFS Magazine for inspiration. We look forward to receiving your contribution for Issue 3!
The deadline for submissions is 24th January 2023, 11:59pm (midnight). The magazine will be published in March 2023.
Email Mairi at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Prompt: The Power of Place
Alongside your magazine submission, we would like you to respond to this prompt with a visual and/or 3-5 words on how place influences your sustainability practice. These will come together in the magazine in a collage …
Here are some ideas on what the visual could be:
A photograph of a place that is important to your sustainability practice, or something from that place
A (small) drawing/sketch
How a certain place makes you feel
This is included in the submission form.
