Combined (NZ and Aus) conference of The Textile Institute to be held in Dunedin, New Zealand, 15-17 April 2009.

The objectives of this conference are to:
- recognise and celebrate the United Nations Year of natural fibres;
- examine current issues related to natural fibres in Australasia – production, processing, development of niche products, use, disposal
- facilitate discussion among those working with textiles manufactured from natural fibres – such as members of The Textile Institute, and other professionals (academics, technologists, industrialists, curators / collection managers / conservators, students).

Both the conference theme and sub-topics are relevant to challenges facing those with diverse interests in natural fibres.
