Pidgin Perfect Parley: Working with Identity
Pidgin Perfect invited members of Glasgow's design community to the gallery space of Ironbbratz Studio's for an evening of cross cultural discussion on the topic of 'Working with Identity'.
Three invited speakers presented a body of work centred around the theme of identity covering various angles, from style and individuality to sexuality and gender roles. The parley offered people the opportunity to pitch in their commentaries and opinions to the conversation to create a forum for discussion.
