Community Collaboration a Panel Discussion
November 12 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
A panel discussion featuring the four distributed community projects of PTM 2020.
Join us for engaging discussion between the Community Repair, Ghost Net Landscape: Sea Stories, Sky Exchange, and Interlace: A Community Weaving distributed community projects.
The Distributed Community Projects of PTM 2020 have engaged and energized our community. They have offered connection through safe, socially distanced collaboration and fostered communication about repair and reuse in our textiles, relationships, and communities.
Through storytelling, perspective sharing, and openness, these projects have reminded us of the opportunities for connection, healing, and growth that surround us. This panel will explore the lessons learned, and experiences woven together through community collaboration.
Featuring Brittany Vega of Sky Exchange, Emily Miller, Shere Coleman, and Shelby Silver of Ghost Net Landscape: Sea Stories, Anne Greenwood, Julie Keefe, and Majik Hodges of Community Repair, Dakotah Fitzhugh, and Dana Lynn Louis of Interlace.
The panel discussion will last approximately 60 minutes and will be followed by 30 minute Q&A session.
This panel will be hosted by PTM Producer Eli West and PTM Organizer Caleb Sayan.
Portland Textile Month only happens one month out of the year and we have more events than we can list. So the TextileX-change has been created to serve as a year-round companion site. Both community platforms provide a space to share ideas, histories, knowledge, commerce, and practices across cultures and generations.
TextileXchange serves as a primary hub to foster this inspired exchange throughout the Portland textile community and beyond. We hope you’ll join us!

Help Fund the Next Phase of Development of Portland Textile Month
In a little over two years, PTM has turned from an ambitious idea into an engaged community movement. This transformation highlights the power of our mission to foster collaboration cross-pollination, cultural dialogue, and exchange among the Portland textile community and beyond.
We've organized 3 festivals with over 170 events representing the diversity of textile interests and practices. And we've galvanized makers, businesses, teachers, students, institutions, and organizations to gather around shared interests and knowledge-sharing.
PTM would not have been possible without the dedication of a core group of committed volunteers and the receptiveness of the textile community. We hope to continue building PTM and TextileXchange as sustainable resources that serve the textile community for years to come. And that's where you come in.
If you feel a connection to the PTM mission and what we can accomplish together, please consider directly supporting the next phase of our development. As a direct contributor, your funds will go toward directly towards operational expenses.
