‘Grief is not the end of things but rather the dark substrate from which great things can emerge.’
Nick Cave (2024) The Red Hand Files, Issue #287, June

Which practices, ideas and expectations do we need to let go? Which ones are not realistic, timely or constructive anymore in the world we live in? How can we turn anxiety or anger into action? Which practices and ideas do we want to unlearn, and which to preserve, strengthen, or learn afresh? In a field framed as innovative and perpetually new, we want to consider exnovation – the ending of practices and products.

The Digital Multilogue on Fashion Education 2024 invites us to come together to grieve – to acknowledge, accept and act. Come together to explore the power of mutual learning.

The Digital Multilogue on Fashion Education is a participatory and outcome-oriented space and a series of conferences focused on the learning and teaching of fashion at the tertiary level. It aims to explore and illustrate the diversity and complexity of the field and the practices of fashion education, and to foster a greater understanding of its pasts, presents and futures – methods, values and didactic, pedagogic and epistemological questions - creating a global exchange to inspire mutual learning, collaborative research and shared action.

The Multilogues are organized by Franziska Schreiber & Dr. Renate Stauss, who are brought together and driven by their love for making and wearing fashion, for learning and thinking through fashion, and their belief in its connective, educational and transformative potential.
