My life may not be like yours, because I live my life as an artwork” — Daniel Lismore

Join us for a unique event that will explore high fashion, art and sustainability. In this candid conversation, Daniel Lismore, the talent behind the ‘living sculpture’, will discuss mental health, masculinity in the fashion world and climate change activism with Outburst Queer Arts Artistic Director, Ruth McCarthy.

The conversation will be introduced by Our Place in Space artist and fellow climate change advocate, Oliver Jeffers.

Meet Daniel Lismore

Described by Vogue Magazine as "England's Most Eccentric Dresser", Daniel is a fabric sculptor, designer, and climate change campaigner that is best known for his flamboyant dress sense. Daniel is also an ambassador of the climate change charity Cool Earth and has worked closely with Vivienne Westwood on her Climate Revolution projects.

Ruth McCarthy is co-founder and Artistic Director of Outburst Queer Arts Festival, Northern Ireland’s annual international queer arts event.
