Gallery talk Saturday, November 28, 2015 7:00-8:00 pm
Artomatic Education Room 3 8100 Corporate Dr., Hyattsville, MD 20785
Creative nomad, designer and educator, Tereneh Mosley of Idia’Dega: Elegant Ethical Apparel , is on a crowdfunded odyssey, connecting Indigenous artisans in Africa and USA, one bead at a time. Moving throughout traditionally Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) land in the Northeastern US, she’s connecting the vibrant community of Native American artisans with Kenya’s Maasai in a ground breaking partnership.
In the words of Mathew Lesko she’s “having the time of her life bringing these cultures together and showing them how to use capitalism to support themselves.”
Her journey brings her to Washington, DC November 28 to visit cultural institutions and discuss this global eco-design collaboration, building a new fashion system and challenging the notion of appropriation/inspiration. Meet Tereneh Mosley and join the conversation at Artomatic.
