FATRA will be collaborating with 5 sustainable community organizers and designers throughout August & September 2021 to engage community members in an educational and interactive workshop series. Our small team will launch 15 days of programming across 4 US cities. The 15 day event will feature networking mixers, panel talk and discussions, creative waste- a- thon, garment construction and deconstruction and clothing swap events. The goal of the tour is to educate consumers on creative waste processes and sustainable living, with an opportunity to network and collaborate with like minded business leaders and to celebrate the past 4 years of FATRAs growth and scale.

Wednesday August 18th from 6pm – 11pm will be a “Meet & Greet”, with a Cash Bar and Light Hors”Devours by Boast Catering LLC.

Thursday August 19th from 10am – 12pm will be “Innovation Barn” tour. That day we will use that time to educate participants on sustainability and show the many different facets a circular economy can entail. For the second half of the event from 1pm – 5pm Akilah (owner of FATRA) and I will then take the knowledge learned and apply it in a workshop sponsored by GOODWILL where we make plastic into a textile and then construct them into one of one bags from the materials in addition to donated items by GOODWILL.
