Recycle Week 2013 – Re-imagining ladies tights

As well as going out to speak to residents about about recycling and composting during National Recycle Week 2013, Lewisham Council also worked in conjunction with an arts organisation called Platform 7 who came to Catford and had some interesting methods of catching the attention of those in the area.

With additional support from Arts Council England, ‘Re-imagining Ladies Tights’ raised awareness of textile recycling by exploring the politics of tights and stockings.  This opportunity allows Akleriah, with support from Platform-7, to explore the image, gender politics, social and material value of women’s tights.
