Socialdress - Power to the poeple! is organised by KUD Trivia. This art project by Marija Mojca Pungerčar takes place in the form of a clothes and household fabrics fashion collection. The collection incorporates slogans from the recent Slovenian protests – the expression of the general public’s rebellion and dissatisfaction with the existing system. Modern embroidery machines will be used to embroider the selected slogans onto fabrics and clothes, thus empowering them.

Traditional craft skills, modern technology, fashion, social engagement, activism and social entrepreneurship all join forces in this new interdisciplinary art project within the ongoing Socialdress project; so far RogLab has hosted the Empowering Clothes project twice.

Ways in which you can participate:
- Propose a protest slogan!
- Contribute fabrics!

If tablecloths, napkins, handkerchiefs, shawls, T-shirts, aprons and other fabrics are lying around your home without a purpose, but are well preserved or even new, send us an email at mojca.pungercar@guest.arnes.si by the latest by 22nd August 2013.
- Are you unemployed? Learn the skills of a textile worker!
Become involved in the creation of the collection and perfect your sewing and embroidery skills! Send your application to mojca.pungercar@guest.arnes.si.

The project is co-financed by the Ministry of Education, Science, Culture and Sport of the Republic of Slovenia and Municipality of Ljubljana – The Department for Culture. The project partner is Galerija Alkatraz. The project is sponsored by Lango, d. o. o., the equipment was partially sponsored by Singer Service d.o.o.
