ESDA Social Design / Refugees

Published on 17 April 2023

ESDA collaborates with the APIP-ACAM Foundation in the Social Design project "Cultural Identity through Photography and Fashion Design", in which 20 refugees of 6 different nationalities (including Ukrainians, Afghans, Colombians and Venezuelans) and 5 classes of students from different specialities, levels and subjects participate.

It is a project directly inspired by another one directed by Francesco Mazzarella at the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at the London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London (UAL), with which he collaborated in situ thanks to an ERASMUS grant and is implemented by professors Cecilia Casas Romero (Photography) and Ana González Collado (Fashion Design):

The project uses photography and fashion design to work with different cultural identities in order to exchange life experiences and achieve other immaterial results such as empowerment, a sense of community or a critical sense, both among refugees and students.
