Purpose of this workshop is to guide consumer behavior towards experiences, minimalist consumption, good product awareness and creating value in the market. Can we buy moments over things? We explore the change-makers and consumers in this space across the globe, how to develop tools and strategies to buy, sell and experience with intention and purpose.
Mindfulness in Apparel
This workshop explores artisanship in our garments and the art of mindful production and consumption. We develop an awareness of how to shop for clothing and look at apparel as collectible garments that we treasure, not throw away. Understanding a product's worth, why it's better, and how it could help you thrive or survive. We dive into the craft of design, for active purpose and how this can lead to more sustainable clothing choices, and how garments can provide more than just the latest trend.
To truly develop quality of life in the work you do, you should understand how to build knowledge and skills to reach your desired career goals and purpose. It is important to become aware of what a work-life balance should offer you and the emotional stability to handle any tasks, issues or stress in the future of work.We all need to find our place, and we can choose and benefit from a safe space where we can thrive as humans, while also helping to benefit society.
