Reverse Resources is an Estonian startup developing software for major fashion brands and their garment suppliers to help them map their leftovers from production and put them back into use. In the 1,5 years after winning the Global Change Award, the company has visited, gathered data, and carried out trials for their remanufacturing concept within 7 huge factories in China and Bangladesh. In total, these factories produce more than 20 million garments per month. At the lecture, founder of Reverse Resources Ann Runnel will talk about her trips, what she has seen in these factories, and which conclusions their team has made.


The lecture will be held in Estonian, with Russian translation, and it is part of the public programme of Maria Kapajeva’s exhibition “The Dream is Wonderful, Yet Unclear”. The lecture will take place in the II floor auditorium of Narva Art Residency.
