What You Wear Tells a Story

Ages 8+

What Will You Learn?

Start campers thinking about the stories they can tell with fashion. Ask “What story is this person telling?”

After the slides, mention that although we do tell a story with what we wear, that is not our only story and our stories change often. We should not fall into stereotyping or generalizing who a person is, just because of what they are wearing at the time! This is an opportunity for a great discussion.

See it in Action

Hayle talks about the inspiration for her piece and what she hopes to inspire with her wearable.
