Registration is open to attend a dialogue that will bring together Indigenous Peoples and fashion companies in an informal setting.
The dialogue will provide an opportunity for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of best practices, with the aim of connecting people, increasing mutual understanding, building relationships and exploring forward-looking ways to facilitate collaborations between Indigenous Peoples and fashion companies. There will be no formal outcomes.
Representatives of Indigenous Peoples from around the world will share their perspectives on the role, significance and importance of their traditional clothing, designs, symbols and patterns.
Fashion companies will share their experiences, initiatives and best practices related to the ethical and fair use of traditional cultural expressions in fashion, and describe their experiences and lessons learned from collaborating with Indigenous communities.
We cordially invite you to join us for this exceptional event either in person at WIPO Headquarters in Geneva or online.
Interpretation services will be available in English, French and Spanish.
