The week will start with an evening reception with a talk called Making Fashion Fair by Anna McMullen. Anna is a workers’ rights activitst for the anti-sweatshop campaign group Labour Behind the Label.

The talk will be held on Monday, October 22, at 6.30pm in the Gallery at Stamford Arts Centre. There will be light 
refreshments to start and a question and answer session.

There will be events in the Gallery at the Arts Centre, running until Saturday, October 27. Photographs, stalls and a multimedia exhibition, will demonstrate how local and national groups are “moving towards one world”. There will also be a film screening.

There will also be a competition for models using only natural materials with four categories, which are animals, people, machines or a scene and can be entered in 2D or 3D, and there will be winners in various age groups.

Submissions can be by 
collage (no larger than A2) or models created individually or by a group.

The judge will be Erica Burt of St Leonard’s Street, a member of the Steering Group and author of a book about model making with natural materials.
