Nashville International Center for Empowerment Showcase
“An Evening of Fashion and Food” will include a show & tell style performance wherein youth show off their favorite clothing and meals. Participants from the community will enjoy a fashion show, food art showcase and leave with student-made recipe cards. Youth will also write personal narratives explaining their fashion and food choices and tying them to personal experiences. Following this, youth leaders will divide community members into break out rooms and host conversations about the favorite fashion and food of the audience. Together, we will transform the old addage “the clothes make the person” into “the journey makes ones clothing matter.” NICE hopes that telling these stories will elevate the voices of our students and enable them to raise awareness while becoming catalysts for change!
