Breaking Down Borders: Movement & Migration Through Cloth – watch online

“Cultural appropriation only happens when there are power inequalities between different cultures. Cultural appropriation implies that a more powerful culture is using another less powerful culture.” Serkan Delice

For BTB21 Creative Lancashire  collaborated with Amber Butchart to present a series of Conversations in Creativity talks to further explore the themes responded to by artists & makers contributing to the British Textile Biennial programme.

This panel explores the narratives and intersections that connect migrant journeys through the global textile industry and perspectives on cultural appropriation within crafts practices.
