2023 Fibershed Symposium: Relationships of Change
November 10 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
2023 Wool & Fine Fiber Symposium
Relationships of Change
“Relationships of Change” will explore the interdependence of people, policy, and materials that are necessary for transforming our soil-to-skin system. Every choice we make when wearing, caring and consuming elicits a direct environmental, economic, and human response. In this year’s Symposium you’ll hear from those working on critical issues of fossil fuel divestment from textiles and fashion, garment workers’ rights, and new laws aiming to internalize the costs of our textile ‘waste’ while catalyzing shifts in material choice and design. We will also take stock of our regional fibershed economies– hearing from Fibershed Affiliates, the Fibers Fund and efforts to bring climate benefitting farming and ranching incentives to the national scale.
This will be a hybrid event, and you may join us in person in Point Reyes or virtually. A portion of our speakers will be presenting virtually as well as a few in person. In person attendees will enjoy the 4 hour event in a casual cafe atmosphere with a special coffee and tea service.
