Active Textiles, Arcintex 2015
The latest Arcintex conference – titled Active Textiles – was held at the Academy of Arts in Vilnius, Lithuania from 12-16 October. Martha and Sarah participated in Workshop 2 Experimenting Textile Integration with Active Components (led by Jussi Mikkonen) on the first 3 days, before a tour of Kaunas Biennale exhibition in a variety of locations across the city and also a factory visit to Omniteksas, a textile company. We stayed at the wonderful Panemune Castle, where Richard presented Participatory eTextiles design with mental health care communities as part of the main conference.
