This October the PTXM festival will explore the theme of Regeneration. Through the loss and dislocation we have collectively experienced, how have our myths, rituals, and symbols sparked joy and regeneration within our textile practices? What are the reflections that have inspired and shuttled us through uncertain times? And what role do art, community building, protesting, teaching, sharing, and grieving play in regenerating the communities and worlds we inhabit?
We are honored to explore this important topic with you highlighting diverse perspectives across a myriad of cultures and generations. Please join us in sharing your projects, knowledge, experiences, and practices highlighting the power of inclusive grassroots organizing during this year's PTXM festival.
Submissions are open to all individuals, artists, businesses, organizations, and institutions in Portland and beyond.
With gratitude and admiration,
