Students of department of textile of Tartu Art College (TAC) are participating in joint exhibition Campus taking place during the international Heimtextil textile fair held in Frankfurt January 8-12, 2018. The aim of the exhibition is to bring together leading European higher education institutions teaching textile design.
This year the common theme for Campus, under which every participating school sets up their exposition, is Meeting-Sharing-Places. TAC students of department of textile chose to elaborate on themes central to their graduation works and focused on different outputs. Keyword Connections refers to interaction between young designers during their studies as well as to sharing their experience and gaining new contacts at the fair.

Institutions participating in the Campus project belong to a network of cooperation of design schools.Participating at the fair is an opportunity to introduce the visitors Estonian design students and textile design education in Tartu.
