ACD – platform LifeArts has been launched for educational purposes with the aim to contribute to the current debates on gender equality and freedom of expression through interdisciplinary research, educational sessions, creative 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 and gender relations. It is also an actual vessel of political legitimacy and unique space for artists, audiences, and other stakeholders in cultural and educational management. In this regard, the ACD team has initiated developed partnerships and have developed educational sessions within the field of the fashion industry, with the aim to reach a wide population by providing gender-sensitive education through fashion and lifestyle-oriented activities.


Fashion can positively stimulate interaction among nations, as a contemporary gathering of individuals who share and exchange their creative works toward common benefit and development.

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 to 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 issues, will result in the building of synergies to support the young generation in their orientation toward lifestyles and trends with critical observation.
