Instagram for the Othered- a #topclassfashionmodel talk

16 June 2019


Venue: The Fish Factory, The Sail Lofts, Commercial Road, Penryn, TR10 8AG

Organiser: Camilla Stacey

Camilla Stacey is an artist, performer and workshop facilitator based in Penryn, Cornwall. Camilla runs the International Artist Residency programme at The Fish Factory Art Space and makes work from her studio in the middle of Penryn.

For the last year artist, performer and facilitator Camilla Stacey has been subverting the image of Instagram models by becoming a #topclassfashionmodel.

As a size 24, 45 year old with chronic mental and physical illness, no budget and no real interest in fashion Camilla enjoys manipulating what people expect an Insta-model to be with the use of her body, props and hashtags.

Join this FREE talk on why representation on Instagram is so important for those ‘othered’ by society and for society as a whole.

This will be a relaxed talk with images to illustrate discussion points.

This FREE morning talk has the option to sign up for a 4 hour afternoon workshop where you can learn how to be a #topclassfashionmodel for £12.

The Fish Factory Art Space CIC includes a gallery space, artist studios, a shop and vegan cafe. We have a portable ramp to enable wheelchair users to enter the space, as well as hand rails on steps (2 steps) and in the all gender toilet.

The Fish Factory welcomes all people (and dogs) and the cafe will be open during the talk so feel free to drop in and out of the conversation if you need to.
