About this Event
• What does it mean to really have nothing to wear?
• Who does clothing poverty affect, and what impact does it have?
• How easy is it to alleviate it, and what can YOU do to support us?
These questions and more will be answered by this powerful short film by Roscoe Rutter Ltd, shot in March and May 2021 at Sharewear Clothing Scheme's Nottingham and Sheffield Centres.
Packed with revealing interviews with those that Sharewear support and the organisations we work with to make that happen, including Framework, NUH Hospitals, Jericho Road Project and Futures.
Our team of employees and volunteers also give their invaluable input, highlighting the challenges and rewards of being a part of Team Sharewear. In the Q&A, the relationship between Sharewear’s work and the Right to Clothing will also be explored.
• 15min film
• Q&A with the CEO of Sharewear Clothing Scheme, Louise Cooke
• Luke Graham will also discuss the relationship between clothing poverty and the right to adequate clothing
