    Participation Fashion Workshop in Havana

    This workshop* will be led by Uta Bekaia with Cuban designers specialized in the use of recyclable materials and repurposing practices. The participants will create original “wearable art”, which will be worn by the performers during the show. This workshop constitutes an essential part of Vestiphobia Cuba and will function as an ongoing installation at the Gallery Taller Gorria, in Old Havana. The workshop will be open to passersby to observe the different stages of the costumes’ development.

    Participants in the workshop will be in direct contact with the rest of the creative team (actors, performers, singers and artists) to encourage relationships between U.S and Cuban artists. The workshop will be documented and publicized in several local and international venues, providing an extensive coverage of the participants’ work. It will also include a series of documentaries and video art screenings about contemporary fashion trends, sustainability and globalization.
