Camels and Butterflies – Craft / Design

Project details



Butterflies and camels have always been subjects of curiosity: Butterflies are light and buoyant. They pollinate from flower to flower, following the wind and the ephemeral changes of season. Camels are creatures of labor. Where the butterfly is free, the camel weathers all storms and draughts. The camel is self-sufficient, carrying their own water, moving through life with steady strength; always remembering a face or their way home.

Can you relate to any of the two? It is our observation that in most social groups, personalities can be matched to these two options. However, in a well blended group they are able to exchange roles, each one able to enjoy a little bit of the other’s charisma.

In Communitism, we believe that communication is achieved through common practice.
For this reason, and because we are looking forward to embodying a little bit more of the camel or the butterfly, we invite artists, crafters and anyone intrested in learning and sharing to create with us an outstanding fashion show, dedicated to these two lovely creatures and their unlimited combinations.

Clothing, accessories and the whole show’s set up will be created by repurposing old garments and materials, through a horizontal skill sharing process. So far we have knowledge in garments, jewellery and lighting making techniques. Everyone is encouraged to share their knowledge and skills with the group. We are looking forward to blending all of our approaches and ideas!
