Hinabi Textile Lab: tracing indigenous, contemporary, and global textile traditions and intersections
Hinabi Textile Lab: tracing indigenous, contemporary, and global textile traditions and intersections is a multi-disciplinary exploration using research, curatorial, education, and archiving practices to excavate, decolonize, archive, and engage with indigenous Philippine textiles and textile-making practices.
The project encompasses:
- Publication of Textiles of the Philippines resource book
- Interactive and intergenerational education programs and materials
- Community weaving and public programs and presentations
- A growing library of resources on weaving and textile practices from around the world
- Immersive installation exploring intersections between indigenous, contemporary, and global textile traditions
Hinabi Textile Lab was featured in CROSSLINES: A Culture Lab on Intersectionality presented by Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center at the Smithsonian Arts & Industries Building in May 2016.
