Unsustainable Waste Futures: Recuperative Common World Textile-Child Pedagogies

Veronica Pacini-Ketchabaw and Denise Hodgins conducted a collaborative common worlds project with children and educators to explore the different environmental possibilities and challenges that fabrics offer. They documented the transformation of textiles and refigured children’s relationships with them.  Using an arts-based visual methodology and common world practices, Veronica and Denise enacted Jane Bennet’s (2010) concept of vibrant matter to cultivate ecological ethico-politics for unsustainable waste futures (Hird, 2012). The project focussed on keeping waste materials in sight and in mind and responding to the process of material transformations.
