On April 24th 2018 it will be 5 years since the collapse of the Rana Plaza factory in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It was one of the worst ever industrial accidents and the world’s worst garment factory disaster. It shined a light on the industry and the impact of fast fashion on those who make our clothes. However, since the disaster the industry has hardly changed with workers still being refused their rights and living and working in poor conditions for poverty wages.
On 28th April 2018, also the annual World Day for Safety and Health at Work and International Workers’ Memorial Day, Labour Behind the Label will be holding a charity art auction, raising funds for our vital work and the campaign that works to improve conditions and empower workers in the global garment industry.
Right now we are calling for artist contributions. More details about the event to follow.
Venue: Bristol (exact tbc)
