To celebrate Tapestry: Here & Now, the Holburne is delighted to bring together a distinguished panel of international speakers, many of them exhibiting artists. The symposium will explore the relevance of tapestry as a means of conveying the narrative of our times. Providing perspectives from around the globe, speakers will explore how this art form can spark conversations and inspire reflection about our experiences and the world around us.

Speakers will include Yasuko Fujino (Kyoto City University of Arts, Japan); Valerie Kirk (Australian National University, Australia); and Pat Taylor (previously Director at West Dean Tapestry Studio, UK). The event will be chaired by Professor Lesley Millar, the curator of Tapestry: Here & Now
