The Body Politic is a new creative partnership between the University of Washington, Bothell and Cornish College of the Arts, culminating in a catwalk project at Seattle Art Museum in Fall 2016. Students are invited to form 2-4 person cross-campus, cross-disciplinary teams to imagine, design, and construct a wearable that addresses a societal need.
Student teams will create and present portfolios of their ideas to a set of faculty/mentors from both the University of Washington, Bothell and Cornish College of the Arts. The top 10 teams will receive studio space, mentoring, and up to $2000 in funding to realize their design for the presentation at the Seattle Art Museum.
