Textiles Tomorrow Summit at Aalto ARTS Finland
Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Finland
Seminar: October 30-31, 2019
Aalto University is proud to host the second textile education conference initiated by Lidewij Edelkoort in 2018 at The New School/Parsons, New York.
This year our aim is to continue sharing ideas as a community and to take further steps to build bridges between textile academics and professionals. The summit provides a versatile platform for learning and discussing topics of novel sustainable textile materials, cross-disciplinary collaborations, and artistic and technical expertise.
The summit includes a number of exhibitions. The Väre Building and the Learning Centre exhibitions feature the versatility and high artistry of textile design at Aalto University. The book launch of Interwoven – Exploring Materials and Structures written by Maarit Salolainen takes us on a journey to learn about woven textiles and experience emotions and stories of textiles at the Espoo Museum of Modern Art (EMMA), where you can also explore the group exhibition Interwoven featuring 12 artists.
The Educational Talks offer a platform for you to share your knowledge and expertise with us. The Studio Talks and Presentations lead us to peek behind the scenes of tomorrow’s textiles.
Welcome to the Summit!
