Melissa Leandro and Sasha are members of the Textile Technology Research Group at SAIC, an emerging initiative focused on innovation in research-based art practices in textiles. The TTRG is interested in the fundamentally collaborative nature of craft, research, and invention and strives to create a collective of expertise across the arts and sciences through mentorship, curatorial and technical collaborations, exhibitions, and outreach within the areas of textiles and fiber-based media.
As members of the TTRG, Sasha de Koninck and Melissa Leandro have been working tirelessly for over a year now to bring their research projects to fruition. We have been accepted to develop our research projects at the Textiel Lab in Tilburg, The Netherlands. We need to fill the gap in our funding. Please support our campaign and please pass it on!!
