Textile Intersections

12-14 September 2019 Loughborough University in London

TEXTILE INTERSECTIONS is a two-day conference and three-day exhibition of works organised by the Textile Design Research Group at Loughborough University in collaboration with Royal College of Art, Queen Mary University London exploring collaborations in textile design research to be held at Loughborough University in London between  12 – 14 of September 2019. It is a follow on from the Intersections Conference held in London in 2017.

FOCUSING ON FOUR THEMES of textiles and architecture, textiles and interactions, textile materialities processes, and critical textiles we are interested in topics related to connections and cross- or interdisciplinary collaborations furthering research in the field of textiles and textile design. What is the nature of collaborations textiles are susceptible to establish with other disciplines and which are the outgrowths for each discipline? How are these collaborations initiated? What makes a successful collaboration leading to innovative research? What are the issues? Why collaborate?

A RELATED EVENT will be held at ENSAP Lille in October 2019, organised by Clotilde Félix-Fromentin.
