Our theme focuses on using the arts to tell our textile stories. The conference program includes ideas for how to use theater, music, and the visual arts in your community as well as collaborating with local arts agencies and organizations.

The conference will also provide sessions on fundraising, historic preservation, and developing heritage tourism products led by industry professionals and opportunities to network with experts and other communities along the Trail as well.

In addition, conference attendees will have several opportunities to explore Dalton’s rich textile heritage. Please see the attached brochure for details.
