The clothes we wear play an active role in how we relate to the world. Clothes enable people to express their values, interests and identity and they instil independence, confidence and dignity. However, while the personal and social benefits of clothing are positive, an obsession for new clothes is fuelling Australia’s increasing levels of textile waste, which often includes items that have never or hardly been worn.

Hosted between UniSA and AnglicareSA Thread Together program this exhibition explores how clothing reuse can support environmental and human wellbeing. 

The Visualising Mental Health exhibition will also be showing in the Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, 8-23 October.
