Weave a Real Peace 2022 Annual Meeting

Tradition, Innovation & Community Stewardship:

Evolution of Textile Arts

Community stewardship includes both honoring the past and safeguarding the future. In many textile communities, age-old traditions merge with new innovations. For our 2022 conference, WARP will bring together speakers from textile communities around the world to discuss questions artisans face in our ever-changing world. Please take a look at the 2022 virtual schedule below, and you can also view the full meeting program online here

This year's meeting is free and open to all to attend. Our program of panel discussions and presentations will be open to the public, and we will also have some "members only" events, such as our Annual Friday night Welcome Circle, a Saturday night celebration of WARP's 30th anniversary, our Annual Business Meeting, and “Breakout Rooms” to have time for conversation.
