Restoring, Reactivating, Resisting

Save the date: on 10 December 2021, will take place EFHA International Symposium, titled Crafting Heritage. It will explore how fashion and its products – textiles, accessories and clothes – can inform a better understanding of the relationship between craftsmanship and heritage.

The symposium will present experiences in researching and establishing methodologies to preserve fashion objects and the knowledge they bear in their materiality; special collaborative projects related to the collection and study of tangible and intangible heritage; craft as “language” of activism, updating – through digital technologies – past making processes.

 

In collaboration with DIDA – Università degli studi Firenze and Museo del Tessuto di Prato.
