Material Witness is a groundbreaking lecture and workshop series, developed by the Textile Museum of Canada. This series brings together international thinkers and artists who will address textile concepts and practices through several lenses, including those of ethno-anthropology, current practices by artists who use textiles as media and inspiration, and theories of cultural translation and diversity. Each event in the Material Witness series will offer an individual way of seeing and understanding the diverse human experiences that are embedded in textiles. These discussions will also explore how the fields of fine art and textile crafts can lead to a further appreciation of the richness and diversity of the world we share.
