Winners outfit presentation. ITS ARCADEMY CALLING HIGH SCHOOLS FOR RESPONSIBLE CREATIVITY
15 Febbraio 2021
Given the times, we are more than excited to present you with the outfits produced by the winners of ITS Arcademy Calling High Schools for Responsible Creativity.
We are immensly proud of the work carried out by the winners, the special mentions and all students involved. In the midst of the pandemic they were able to re-think entirely how to carry out the project, focusing on what they had at home and working remotely with their teachers to produce their outfits without the support of the laboratories in their schools. The results are outstanding. One of the special mentions – Noemi Vidoni from Liceo Artistico Statale Sello, Udine – even decided to produce her outfit regardless not being required to, and gifted it to the ITS Arcademy.
