Colombian Women's Coop Visits the Textile Museum of Canada

Toronto, Ontario 

February 24 2014

The Textile Museum of Canada is one of Toronto's most engaging visual arts organizations.  With more than 12,000 objects from more than 200 countries and regions, the TMC's permanent collection celebrates cultural diversity and includes traditional fabrics, garments, carpets and related artifacts such as beadwork and basketry.  The Museum offers a broad variety of exhibitions including themed shows based on our permanent collection and contemporary exhibitions of the work of Canadian and international artists.

The Textile Museum invited key staff  to see the products and how they are made. This session proved to be very enriching for the audience and the group. They were very appreciative of the craft and its deep cultural meaning in addition to the social value in empowering young generations of women.
