Invitation from Nordic Textile Art to participate in a meeting with Icelandic textile artists about textile art in the Nordic region, in cooperation with the Icelandic textile association Textílfélagid from 22nd to 25th of March 2012. At the same time the design festival HönunnarMars is in progress.
Nordic Textile Art wants to enable new encounters and create networks for the Nordic textile art. Nordic Textile Art therefore wants to invite you, being a textile artist or interested in textiles, to a meeting where textile art is in focus. During the HönnunarMars-days where Iceland is swarming with exciting design, exhibitions, installations and lectures, we get the opportunity to by personal meetings and stimulating circumstances, discuss the textile art in both present time, future and historically.
The planned schedule for the days on Iceland, 22nd to 25th of March 2012, will be decided based on the festival program of HönnunarMars. The Nordic Textile Art annual meeting will be held Saturday 24th of March. Time and place will be announced in the calling.
HönunnarMars, DesignMarch is a four day long design festival in Reykjavik that has a program with a wide selection. DesignMarch wants to show that design plays a fundamental role in these days of great changes, and reflect the large variety of Icelandic design and architecture. http://www.icelanddesign.is/DesignMarch/
The participation in the meeting and seminary about textile art in the Nordic region is free of charge for the NTA members. Eventual costs might occur in relation to arrangements during DesignMarch. You answer to travel expenses, board and lodging.
NTA is hoping that the days on Iceland will result in new encounters and networks; more knowledge and understanding of textile art in the Nordic regions; insight and experience of textiles on Iceland; inspiration and new possibilities to continued work both individually and in new constellations.
Icelandic Textile Guild, Textílfélagid is a joint venture of Icelandic textile artists. Asdis Birgisdottir is the contact person and the Icelandic representative of NTC.
