Threading the City

Fiber Artists Miami Association (FAMA) wants to celebrate and mobilize the textile arts community with our first city-wide event Threading the City. Artists are a driving force in recharging communities and our economy. Recent data has proven that artists are drivers in placemaking. FAMA understands that the main ingredients to creative placemaking are creative initiators consisting of a team, building on our collective expertise, mobilizing support from organizations, community engagement, and creating partnerships. As such, Threading the City is an investment in an economic, cultural, and social platform that will help revitalize and showcase the extraordinary talent of local and international textile artists. The event serves as a platform to unite local and international artists, curators, institutions, and educators in dialogue to demystify the world of contemporary textile art.

Threading the City
is funded by The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts.

Miami is a populous city of wanderers and immigrants from around the world. The cultural map of Miami embraces people who speak different languages, of different ethnicities, and skin colors, all special and unique. This thread invites artists to address the theme of displacement, migration, heritage, and cultural legacy that can help weave Miami's past into the present. Through textiles, fibers,  and mixed media, artists will narrate perspectives and intersectional dialogues of our city from outside and within.
