On the first day of the workshop participants were able to gain access to collections from a number of museums (the Nordic Museum, the National Museum of Fine Arts and the Royal Armoury / Livrustkammaren). The second day of the workshop focused on presentations and gave the opportunity to postgraduate students and young professionals to present their work and participate in the discussions. Participants were also able to visit the Hallwyllska Museet and see the exhibition “Vowen Dreams of Fashion” Ebba von Eckermann and Ripsa, 1950-1980, curated by Patrik Steorn:
