"In Cusco, Peru, Nilda Callañaupa founded a women’s collective that encourages weavers from different communities to develop their practice as independent, sustainable artists. In San Cristobal de las Casas, Mexico, fashion designer Alberto López challenged gender divisions to proudly claim his role as a weaver and designer. Together, Callañaupa and López will share how they are refashioning Indigenous textiles by recovering traditional designs and relearning ancient techniques, and most importantly, by empowering their communities of origin.
