THE THEME

The 2016 conference theme focuses on contemporary craft education. ‘Cultivating Craft’ will explore ideas from in and outside formal educational structures, including discussions regarding the value of craft, community development, new technologies and interdisciplinarity. A spotlight will be directed on indigenous recognition and representation, the impact of mentorship and residency activity, lifelong career sustainability and the many ways craft organizations and institutions work to raise craft practice in Canada to new heights.
