Join Camilla Rossing, Director of the Norwegian Institute for Bunad and Folk Costume for this lecture in conjunction with the opening of Dressing with Purpose: Belonging and Resistance in Scandinavia.

Dress helps us fashion identity, history, community, and place. Dress has been harnessed as a metaphor for both progress and stability, the exotic and the utopian, oppression and freedom, belonging and resistance.
