Celebrating partnerships and environmental sustainability through upcycled, wearable art.

Carleton College Weitz Center for Creativity

Join us for an evening of sustainability and style at the Runway Revival: Reduce. Reuse. Refashion event, hosted by dedicated community members and Community Action Center. This is not your typical fashion show!  It celebrates the creative talents of local artists who have designed wearable pieces using 90% recycled, upcycled, and reused materials.

In addition to a stunning fashion show, Runway Revival is also a fundraiser. Come learn about and celebrate the many environmentally sustainable efforts at CAC and throughout our community while contributing to CAC’s important work in housing, recovery, and food insecurity.  Attendees will also enjoy live music, food, and drink while mingling with fellow members of the community at this zero waste event.

Taking place on Thursday, August 22, 2024 from 6pm-9pm at Carleton College Weitz Center for Creativity. This event is meant for everyone in our community. Come be inspired at this unique, artistic display. Ticket information, sponsorship opportunities, and more event details to come!

Don’t miss out on this unique and inspiring event that combines art, sustainability, and community. Join us for Runway Revival: Reduce. Reuse. Refashion.
