TextilesTradeTime is a collaborative initiative of the Textiles and Materiality Cluster of Milieux Institute for Research in Arts, Culture and Technology, Studio Re-Imagine (of the Concordia University Research Chair in Socially Engaged Art and Public Pedagogies) and Kinawind Lab (of the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Arts Practice), with the support of the Centre for Sensory Studies. Keynotes are presented in association with CICA-Conversations in Contemporary Art.

All are at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.

We would like to acknowledge that Concordia University is located on unceded Indigenous lands. The Kanien’kehá:ka Nation is recognized as the custodians of the lands and waters on which we gather today. Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal is historically known as a gathering place for many First Nations. Today, it is home to a diverse population of Indigenous and other peoples. We respect the continued connections with the past, present and future in our ongoing relationships with Indigenous and other peoples within the Montreal community.
