A modern day tale of trash. Presented to you by Fast Fashun and friends. 

We invite you, all who wear clothes and produce trash. 
Come one, come all. 

Let’s talk trash. Let’s talk rubbish. Let’s talk fashun. 
Let’s come together and lament the state of things. 

Set in the remains of a converted textile factory, find yourself surrounded by over a tonne of clothing and textiles otherwise destined for landfill. Just a drop in our collective ocean of waste that sees 6 tonnes of clothing and textiles meet landfills every 10 minutes in this country alone. 

Artists, activists, designers, stylists and participants of Fast Fashun 2.0 2.0 have prepared a wondrous evening of total rubbish performances, rubbish fashun, rubbish models, rubbish stories, rubbish speeches and rubbish installations. All complete and utter rubbish. 

Pay good money to see actual rubbish. You will not be disappointed. 

Featuring work by:
Claire I. Bostock
Matt Gove from Arts Project Australia
