Fibre Networks – Growing Connections for Northern Ireland

20 September 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

At the heart of the global Fibershed movement is a commitment to creating a textile and clothing culture that enhances soil health and biodiversity through regenerative farming practices grounded in the concept of soil-to-soil systems and the right to livelihood for every person involved in the process from farming to finished garment.

In this short seminar the audience will hear about the growth, successes and challenges faced by members of these collectives and consider how we can continue to grow more sustainable fibre networks in Northern Ireland.

Speakers include Malú Colorín chairperson of Fibreshed Ireland with digital presentation from Shannon Welsh of Fibrevolution who work with the Pacific Northwest Fibershed, USA.
