Threads of Empowerment – Conflict Textiles International

June 21, 2024 @ 10:00 am - April 27, 2025 @ 5:00 pm


People across the world have communicated their experiences of violence and conflict, human rights violations, poverty, oppression and environmental issues through the form of textile narrative.

The result is a visual record and a form of artistic expression based on personal, and often very poignant testimonies.

This collaborative exhibition will explore the strengths and highlights of the Conflict Textiles collection – its history, international diversity and the important themes it addresses.

Learn more about the Conflict Textiles collection and associated activities through this link.
