CONSCIOUS CONSUMPTION: CRAFTING THE CITY



Object + Idea | Ask the big questions about what you wear, eat and take in

Be part of Conscious Consumption series 2 as the Textile Museum of Canada pulls together important conversations about consumption and moves them into the city around us. We start with the premise that consumption is an everyday activity that benefits from awareness. We also see it as a deeply personal one – full of commitment, passion and learning.

Towards a personal code of consumption

What do I consume?
How and where are things made?
What makes “craft” craft?
And does it matter to me?

Hear big ideas, get the inside scoop! Join us as we explore how the idea of craft has become part of philosophies of a more responsible life, driving artisanal and sustainable movements today. Each event in the series gets up close and personal with places and people who have pioneered ways of life that are innovative and independent, and who have introduced new elements to the landscape – from urban agriculture and alternative architectures to craft foodways and sustainable fashion. Conscious Consumption: Crafting the City focuses on essentials – food, shelter, clothing – and how craft is an inherent part of practices that are a defining part of sustainable lifestyles today.

Conscious Consumption is presented with the support of TD Friends of the Environment as well as the K.M. Hunter Charitable Foundation.
