STRANGER IS PRESENT

Can the cultural establishment minimise the anxiety of losing its “whiteness” and decolonise by rethinking the raison d’être of the stranger, bringing together diverse stakeholders and their tangible and intangible heritage into an inclusive fabric? This talk is a brief interrogation of that existential dilemma and understanding the stranger.

Layers of significance inform the rich diversity of textiles. It is critical to tease out, understand, assess and contextualise the associated values to safeguard them. Textiles are as fluid as the looms on which there were/are woven. What are the significant pathways in conserving them? How do we collect and establish a representative list as we endeavour to facilitate intergenerational transmission of textile knowledge? How can we associate the folk life and design of textiles bridging the gulf between the tangible and intangible? In what ways can the continuity of textile heritage inform contemporary fashion? Is fashion a means for safeguarding the intangible heritage of textiles? These and many other questions will be addressed in the Heritage Matters Webinar 24.

Context: COVID 19 has opened up opportunities to: address inequities in the system to embed sustainable in SDGs/BLM; transform education and workplaces to rebuild the way we do things; rethink leadership as transformative, inclusive and collaborative; scope with immediacy new approaches to climate crisis; and address culture as an integral part of UN Agenda 2030.
