The Rebel Tartan project, founded by Juliana Sissons came about through a chance meeting with Prof Giles Jackson of Liberation Kilt Co. A get-together at the V&A Museum in 2014, led to discussions about contemporary social movements and fashion design education today. Robin Kerr then joined the project, introducing an initial global element in 2019.
This International collaboration between over twelve leading arts, textiles and fashion design programmes continues to grow and emerged as a result of a small pilot project in 2015, with students from two UK universities collaborating to confront social issues in highly creative ways.
