TaDA Residency 2021<br>Textile Programme on 26.11.2021<br>Arbon and St.Gallen, CH

What makes textile companies in Eastern Switzerland grant artists and designers from around the world access to their machines? And what is the outcome of this kind of collaboration? The second TaDA Spinnerei* will once again present results and processes from the TaDA Residency 2021 programme. After that, textile company representatives and a market researcher will conduct a round-table discussion on new trends in textile production – and what multidisciplinary work has to do with these trends. 
TaDA Textile and Design Alliance is a pilot programme of the cultural promotion offices of the cantons of Appenzell Ausserrhoden, St.Gallen and Thurgau. It aims to initiate exactly these kinds of encounters between cultural practitioners and the textile industry. Through an international call for applications, the programme invites practitioners from all arts disciplines to a three-month residency and brings them into contact with textile companies in Eastern Switzerland. The goal is to stimulate new ideas and approaches with regard to creativity and production in both domains
