Tension[s] 2020: Tamworth Textile Triennial acknowledges that the world has long been a place under various tension[s], both harmonious and dissonant. In order to bear witness to, contribute to and respond to these tensions, the triennial will focus on the future of people and place through textile as a material and human experience as materiality.
