The PTXM festival will return in October 2023 to explore the important topic of Mixed Identities.
Belonging neither here nor there, identifying as another, where are all the others? Between bodies, boxes, borders, histories, cultures, and languages how do our mixed identities influence our textiles, practices, and communities?
Highlighting diverse perspectives across a myriad of cultures and generations, we invite you to share your projects, knowledge, experiences, perspectives, and practices. Featuring the power of inclusive grassroots organizing among the vibrant and diverse Portland textile community and beyond, we look forward to having your participation again for PTXM 2023.
With gratitude and admiration,
Support Our Community Programs
In just over 4 years, Portland TextileX Month (PTXM) has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration, cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and intergenerational exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
This year we’ve organized the PTXM festival with over 40 events and directly sponsored a multitude of FREE programs including exhibits, workshops, artist talks, community events, and more—representing a diverse range of textile interests and practices. This year’s PTXM Regeneration Festival has brought together makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing. PTXM would not have been possible without the dedication of event organizers, paid contributors, paid interns, amazing volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community.
We hope to continue building PTXM and TextileX website as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come, and that’s where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTXM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider making a direct contribution programming. As a direct contributor, your funds will go directly toward programming, lean administrative expenses, and providing paid internships. We appreciate any contribution you can make and your continued support.
