My name is Chidubem, I curate the site Lost in Talent. Currently, I’m working with other young people to create a local community swap shop as part of the Uprising Environmental Leadership Programme.
The idea was inspired by Rebecka Fleetwoood Smith’s work which highlighted that memories and stories allowed possessions to transcend their function. Our idea is to host a swapping event which connects visitors with one another (through networking and dinners) and also clothes.
This is a twist on the swap shop as we ask each donor (of clothing) to share a story on a tag which will accompany their piece of clothing. We would like to host this event a part of the OSCE days.
I wanted to post it in the forum to see if any one would be interested in working with us on making this happen?
PLEASE feel free to get in touch if you’re interested.
