Blue Jean Sisters is a project created by artist Belinda Smith in response to the activities of social justice and ethical clothing brand Outland Denim. The aim is to raise awareness around the issue of modern slavery through collective empowerment. Participants are invited to make a doll out of reused/recycled denim using Belinda’s pattern. Her goal is to install 2000 dolls made by the individuals using her 'zero waste' process.
 
This project is one of seven artist and social enterprise collaborations for A Fierce Hope, the keynote exhibition for Brisbane’s newest art and cultural hub - Adderton: house & heart of mercy, opening in June 2019.
