Art and music in celebration of the people who make our clothes with Lido Pimienta, LAL, DJ sets by Austra, Casey Mecija and others. 7 pm. May 4 & 5. Free.
There will be a Mock Sweatshop where you can sew three headed t-shirts and be paid what your counterpart in Bangladesh is paid in an hour: 40 cents. The Rana Plaza Memorial invites you to sit in silence for a few minutes to remember the 1,128 people who died making our clothes. A pop-up fashion market of indie Canadian designers rounds out the event. Sign a petition to retailers saying youd be willing to pay 5% more for that cute t-shirt if the F.A.S.T. conditions are met: FAIR living wageADULT labour onlySAFE working conditions No unpaid overTIME.
