The Chair Election of OISTAT Costume Design sub-commission will be held at Costume Design sub-commission meeting during OISTAT Hub event in Prague, Czech Republic in 2023.
The Costume Design sub-commission is the sub-commission of OISTAT Performance Design which promotes the field of costume and disseminates information about the art and practice of costume design.
The sub-commission is a non-profit international platform for costume professionals from all over the world, connecting individuals as well as national or regional organizations of costume designers, scholars, and technicians. The aim is to share knowledge, exchange ideas, inform on artistic practice, develop research, and motivate creative and critical discourse on costume related issues within the widest possible range of costume practitioners and researchers around the world. Individual members, guests and interested parties are also welcome to participate in meetings and projects.
We would like to thank the current Chair Simona Rybáková, Vice Chairs Sofia Pantouvaki and Rosane Muniz for their achievement and commitment that opened up various possibilities for OISTAT Costume Design sub-commission.
