Ars Textrina 2007, Belfast, Northern Ireland

The 2007 Ars Textrina International Textiles Conference was hosted by The University of Ulster.

This year’s theme was ‘Textile Territories: Past, Present & Future’.

Textiles are embedded in a region’s culture and economy in an integrated way that is not replicated in other disciplines. This conference aims to address regional and location specific textile design, production, manufacture and its associated technology in a cultural context by looking at the past, present and future roles of textiles and its heritage. The conference provided an inter-disciplinary forum for textile and fashion practitioners, museum professionals with interests relating to textiles and their collection, exhibition and documentation, teachers and academic researchers, and those with an interest in the socio-cultural aspects of historic, contemporary and future textiles.
