TSA SYMPOSIUM 2014

2014 Biennial Symposium: New Directions: Examining the Past, Creating the Future

The theme of the Symposium, New Directions: Examining the Past, Creating the Future, explores change and innovation in textiles in the past while looking at the state of the field of textiles, textile study, production and creativity, today and for the future. Where have we been and where are we going? What are the moments that encapsulate change? What are the shifts in direction for cultures, technology, creativity and knowledge? And how do these shifts effect our understanding of textiles?
