RECLAIMING QUEER WEAR: A YOUTH-LED FASHION STATEMENT

Reclaiming Queer Wear: A Youth-Led Fashion Statement is Parkrose Hight School’s Artist In Residence’s latest programming focused on fashion making and wearing to celebrate queerness and uplift youth-led decision making, funded by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts’ Precipice Fund. I, working with Lillyanne Pham, am currently facilitating a co-learning space built by queer ideating, fashion experimentation, and embodied awareness. The students will showcase their final works at a public fashion show in May 2023.
