‘How many textile designers, artists or practitioners can you name who are Black, Asian, from Ethnic Minorities, identify as LGBTQI+, or living with a disability?
Diverse Voices in Textiles is a pioneering teaching initiative by an academic team at Loughborough University based in the School of Design and Creative Arts who were awarded an Inclusivity Teaching Innovation Award (2021). The project aims to build a considered, inclusive and diverse agenda to advance the conversation in textiles and amplify the voices of those it serves. This exhibition sets out to celebrate distinguished textile designers, artists and practitioners who have otherwise been under-represented within curriculums and the history of textiles by bringing critical stories to the forefront, to enrich and enhance our students’ knowledge and understanding of the discipline.
