Project Threadways Symposium: The Future, 2024

Project Threadways Symposium: The Future, 2024

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, dinners, exhibitions, and workshops create a multi-day experience in Florence, Alabama, centered on material culture and making. Conversations begin in our community and expand throughout the region, nation, and around the globe. 

 

In 2024, our theme is The Future. On April 19-20, 2024, we will gather at The Factory in Florence, Alabama, and remotely 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. 

 

The 2024 event will offer in-person and virtual experiences, with multiple ways to participate. A full schedule and tickets will be available soon. Follow @alabamachanin and join our email list for updates.
