20th March at 6pm is the time of the official launch of our newly formed “textile futures research group” which comprises around 30 innovators in the field of textiles working across the University of the Arts.
There will be a seminar at 6pm at the ICA main lecture theatre at which Ian Ritchie will be one of five contributors giving a 20min talk interrogating the future of textiles through describing their work and ideas. It will be followed by the launch party. Carole Collet, Course Director MA Textile Futures at the University of the Arts, Central Saint Martins College, is leading this initiative.
