2024 Project Threadways Symposium

2024 Project Threadways Symposium

The annual Project Threadways Symposium brings together scholars, activists, makers, and thinkers to present research, share stories, and encourage dialogue about history, community, and power—all through the lens of fashion and textiles. Presentations, exhibitions, and workshops create a multi-day experience in Florence, Alabama, centered on material culture and making. In 2024, the theme is The Future. On April 19-20, 2024, they will gather at The Factory and virtually to imagine a better way for textile manufacturing. Presenters will consider the balance between art and business, connect heritage and healing, preserve craft and community, and look to the past to chart a more sustainable future. This event offers in-person and virtual experiences. They will be live streaming from The Factory, and guests can ask questions and share comments through the chat function.
