Welcome to the Portland TextileX Month New Traditions Festival!

As we think about New Traditions, we’re considering the questions that shape this contemporary moment and its broad implications. 
In this moment of rapid transformation what traditions do we preserve and build upon and what do we rethink and rebuild anew? 
How can we transform our textile practices, collections, materials, businesses, institutions, and educational systems to serve a more inclusive, equitable, sustainable, and connected purpose
What is the future we want to weave and how do we build it together? 
Our continued goal for this year’s festival is to engage, share ideas, histories, knowledge, experiences, and practices across myriad cultures, viewpoints, and generations. We are excited to explore this topic with you and see what New Traditions we can weave together.
