The UKRI Interdisciplinary Textiles Circularity Centre (TCC) is a four year research programme aiming to realise a future circular textiles economy for the UK SME apparel-fashion industry based on bio waste - that is shaped by people’s participation in materials circularity, consumer experience and supply chain - to create a coupling between the bio waste resource flow and wellbeing.
During London Design Festival, the TCC hosts its first public dissemination of its research, to showcase its ambitions and insights, to broaden its network of partners and collaborators at the Royal College of Art’s Battersea campus.
The TCC is nine months into its first year, so this year’s dissemination event will consist of a piece of design communication to articulate the vision and ambition of the programme of research and its partnerships. Each research strand (Materials Circularity, Supply Chain, and Consumer Experience) will showcase a range of communication elements including illustrations, films, technical demonstrators and materials samples.
The TCC invites all sections of society to visit the exhibition, and we welcome the opportunity to discuss new partnerships and collaborations with citizen groups, apparel brands, manufacturers and more.
