About the WTA Organization
The WTA Organization was born in 1997 in the city of Miami-Florida, United States, under the name of Women in Textile Art.
Pilar Tobón, Founding President and Colombian textile artist, raised this great challenge in view of the need to vindicate textile art locally and globally.
WTA has always pursued the goals of supporting-disseminating-promoting-encouraging textile artists and their works.
For the year 2009 and given the inclusive and universal character of textile art, it changes its name to World Textile Art.
Biennials organized by the WTA
PROMOTION OF TEXTILE ART
Strengthen, inspire and promote manifestations of contemporary textile art in all the places where the WTA is present.
Offer new artists the necessary tools to promote their work and career.
Foster awareness among people in the arts globally to prevent our artists from being perceived as artisans rather than true artists.
Strengthen bonds of solidarity with artists and art lovers from all over the world.
