“The act of sewing is a process of emotional repair.”
Louise Bourgeois  

Taking place from April 21 – 23, Project Threadways Symposium, Textiles and Activism, will explore how textiles are used as a vehicle for expression, how the act of making supports community organization, and how material culture documents activism and movements throughout history. The symposium offers in-person and virtual experiences.
