ACD – platform LifeArts has been launched for educational purposes with the aim to contribute to the current global endeavors toward the improvement of life conditions by reducing inequalities through opportunities for engagement, and the improvement of human relations, by including gender approach into all activities, through art-based transdisciplinary research, art_science educational inTalk sessions, workshops, and public events.


Dance workshops, Yoga sessions, and Talk sessions on IR Feminism, fashion, and lifestyles are organized by ACD and partner institutions, ACD- Ambassadors, and special guests.



Fashion can be instrumental in shaping the tone and nature of identity, gender roles, relations, and relationships.

It is also an actual vessel of political legitimacy and a unique space for artists, audiences, and other stakeholders in cultural and educational management. In this regard, the ACD-team has developed partnerships with fashion designers and created art-based educational sessions, with the aim to provide quality learning by engagement and dialogue with professionals from the field, on löife style, the role of fashion in. daily life, and professional career, identity, and its impact on wellbeing, self-esteem, and also challenges connected with judgment of taste, prejudices, and stereotypes, what can lead to misunderstandings, exclusion from social communities and stigmatizing; How can fashion positively influence the social-self and wellbeing, support self-confidence and also open space for finding in ´common sense´? 


Fashion has symbolic power, in terms of representation. Its exhibition constructs and persuades meaning through demonstrating. Especially traditional clothes transfer social standards and cultural concepts with regard to the body, gender, aesthetics, gesture, taste, and cultural roles.

Hence, the symbolic power of „fabrics“ for the development of identity, imposes in some way the specter of the legitimacy of the social order. In its political importance, fashion can raise awareness for diverse nations and cultures, but also for individuals and their contribution to the positive change and prosperity of communities.


Fashion media plays a significant role in providing trends, attitudes, and values.

Fashion shows, fashion magazines, fashion blogging, and all kinds of social media have become a major outlet for spreading trends and promoting causes, such as health-oriented behavior, but also to initiate changes in lifestyles, values, and attitudes, set trends, and contribute to the political changes regarding the position of women in the society, women rights and education for girls, so as provide constructive solutions and models for the development of the wider sense of belonging within a global homeland.

Brands have the potential for economical and educational empowerment of women and girls within developing countries and beyond. Building brand awareness and credibility for traditional crafts and techniques, fabrics, patterns, and design, the fashion industry can support especially female designers, which are the largest group of workers within this industry in developing countries to reach better working and life conditions, better staging of the self within family and society through economical independence and education and train young entrepreneurs across all countries to learn how to connect and to support other projects and initiatives through their engagement.


Cooperation among professionals from creative industries (fashion, media) and those from education, training, and consulting on gender roles and stereotypes, fashion, and lifestyles, sustainable fashion, and resilient body cultures,

will result in the building of synergies to support the young generation in their orientation toward lifestyles and trends, with critical observation, help shape good choices and make quality decisions.   


ACD-Team invites local, national, and international designers to connect and present their creations and create collaborative projects and partnerships. 


Our current ambassador for Fashion-lifestyles is Austrian fashion designer, Elke Freytag.
