Fashion Meets Music Festival (FMMF), WearGood Jam Session, PackH2O. What do these three things have in common? They are all collaborating together to combat the water crisis head on over a period of 9 days.
Rolling in first is the WearGood Jam Session over the weekend of August 22nd. Although the name invokes thoughts of audible music, this event is really about a startup think tank. Designers, engineers, programmers, entrepreneurs, and more are all using their talents to generate wearable technologies for social enterprises that tackle problems in Columbus. There are seven civic challenges at hand ranging from homelessness to public transportation, and the theme for the startups is wearable technology.
They created mock-ups from the Jam Session will be featured at FMMF’s Fashion Show and Tell. As an example of wearable technology, the PackH2O water backpack will be featured during the Jam Session to inspire thought. It will be used as a water dispenser for participants. We began three years ago as a local startup, so this is a cause we feel passionate about supporting. Also, we’re always looking for more ways to use the water backpack in daily life here. Visit WearGood’s website to sign up for the event and visit us.
The following week will be all about Columbus’s new FMMF event. The PackH2O water backpack is, in a sense, wearable fashion for a purpose. Because of this, we will be spreading information about the water transportation crisis throughout the festival. At the event, keep an eye out for new videos from us and some chances to buy our limited edition Wave Makers t-shirt! We’re extremely excited to be a part of this new festival in Columbus.
