The International Fiber Collaborative (IFC) was founded in 2008 as a 501(c)(3) develops community programs that create collaborative opportunities in art and civic engagement. IFC promotes programs that link learning and creativity in the arts to science, math, engineering, and the humanities. Public programming has been a catalyst for creativity in health care facilities, libraries, schools, museums, national parks and many other sites. During the 2018-2019 school year 9,645 students from 354 schools participated in 20 exhibits at national park sites.
