STAG | Down with Dressing Down! Dress-Up Gang! & The Last Stag Party | Saturday, July 30
DOWN WITH DRESSING DOWN! DRESS-UP GANG!
Saturday, July 30, 3-6pm
Dress-Up Gang is a proposed affinity group for liberation and the development of increasingly more and more fabulous versions of one’s self through solidarity, freak-fashion exploration, mutual aid, wardrobe and accessory sharing, emotional support, reflection and critique, photo opportunities, stylist-skill-building, make-up tips, alteration, consultation, influence pooling and power in numbers.
The first convening of this group-to-be will coincide the the STAG’s (Strathcona Art Gallery) last event in it’s current incarnation.
Meet Saturday, July 30, from 3-6pm at the STAG – 826 E. Pender St.
Bring, clothes, wigs, mags, dreams, anything you might want to try and the courage to try it.
Following this event, the STAG will co-host it’s first and only video dance party with the willing, newly initiated members of the Dress-Up Gang. Guests will be supported and encouraged to bring and/or to explore their fabulous selves with the expertise and resources available.
