Threads of Empowerment: Conflict Textiles’ International Journey

21 June 2024 - 27 April 2025
10:00-17:00
Free to all

Explore the different experiences of conflict, oppression and human rights violations across the world through textiles.

People across the world have communicated their experiences of violence and conflict, human rights violations, poverty, oppression and environmental issues through the form of textile narrative.

The result is a visual record and a form of artistic expression based on personal, and often very poignant testimonies.

This collaborative exhibition will explore the strengths and highlights of the Conflict Textiles collection - its history, international diversity and the important themes it addresses.

Threads of Empowerment: Conflict Textiles’ International Journey is part of Belfast International Arts Festival.
