Textile Arts LA Hosts Mindful Materials, A Textile Summit
September 15, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm
We are excited to announce our partnership with Textile Arts Los Angeles! You are invited to join us for Mindful Materials, a 2-day textile summit on Saturday September 15 and Sunday September 16, to explore questions, approaches, and responses to the concept of Mindful Materials. The textile, manufacturing, apparel, and “making” communities have been questioning – in a variety of ways and with a range of enthusiasm – the concept of sustainability, the power of innovation, the role of technology, and how collaboration rather than competition can be a path forward.
As artists and community members, what is our role in these questions and to what degree do we turn to disruption, i.e., a radical rethinking of our ways of making and being in the world? How do we contribute to a meaningful dialogue and course of action – both in our intimate community and in our position within one of the largest urban environments and economic markets in the world?
