Textile Arts Center is a safe space, but not a silent space.
We can be a respite, but we are not just an escape.
TAC is a place for critical thinking and dialogue.
Toni Cade Bambara once said:
“The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible.”
And we are revolutionaries.
We are a place that acknowledges our history.
We are a place that imagines our future.
We are a place that uses our hands.
We are a place for female empowerment.
We are a place for empowerment of all folks to break free of gender norms.
We are a place for connections.
We are a place that educates.
We are a place that educates educators.
We are a place that volunteers our time and abilities.
We are a place that promotes self care.
We are a place where we can admit our flaws, celebrate our differences and further our ideas.
We are a community through textiles, but make no mistake we are revolutionaries.

Share your talents.
WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.
