BURDEN OF PRIVILEGE
Moate Community School, Moate
Our dress ‘Burden of Privilege’ represents the real burden our youth experience living in this consumer driven world. The struggle to meet society’s expectations, to possess the latest phone edition, the trendiest clothing, the most popular styles. The pressure to conform and to follow. Carrying this weight on their shoulders in a bid to fit in. The casting of the cape represents shedding this burden of privilege, this heavy load. Casting it aside frees them to be themselves. To step
out from under the weight of a privileged society and emerge real and as individuals.
