What?
Made in Textile Art Camp: The narrative behind clothes is a Berlin based educational program to learn textile design and art practices in the context of the current local and global challenges faced by the fashion and textile sectors.

Why not  stop fashion?
During the intensive educational program and exhibition we will welcome a fixed group of participants and we will discuss and learn material fiber science and art and textile making techniques. We will also learn about the global and local challenges currently affecting the fashion and textiles sector: environmental destruction, scarcity of resources, social injustice and intersectional discriminiation.

For who?
People between 18 and 27 years old that are interested in art and design and are motivated to improve the way fashion and textiles are made today. You don’t need to be experienced in any of these disciplines to apply!

Anyone who is queer, trans, non-binary, Black, Indigenous, people of color, disabled, have been impacted by the system, are immigrants, and people who experienced systemic oppression and/or gender-based violence are encouraged to apply.



Der Kurs wird vom Berliner Projektfonds Kulturelle Bildung gefördert.
