Update on Community Arts Partnership’s TRASH Fashion

This year’s Trash Fashion project is well and truly up and running. From Belfast to Newry and up to the Maiden City, our dedicated team of Trash Fashion artists are spreading their magic of fashion creativity. Despite Covid restrictions and with safety guidelines in mind, CAP artists have been reaching out to our communities and isolated participants.

Our artists have been working their socks off and have overcome many hurdles to keep the show on the road, from Zoom sessions, videos, to art packs there’s no stopping us. Here is a sneak peak of a few works in progress. Don’t forget to check back our page to see the finished creations.
