Citizens of Craft Updates are Live!

The Citizens of Craft website has been updated with a fresh landing page, easy to navigate menu and we made adding online events, such as virtual exhibitions,  easier than ever. The Canadian Crafts Federation has been working with our digital partners, SOS Design and Digital Chaos, to make new changes to the online crafts hub.

What’s New?

Visit the Citizens of Craft website to take a tour of the fresh updates. To start, you will see the new landing page featuring familiar faces from our “Faces of Craft” artists. A revised information architecture makes it easier to navigate the new menu to find exactly what you’re looking for. We are most excited about simplifying the process to add digital events. We encourage you to post your virtual and live events, no matter where they take place across Canada. Enjoy these new features, and take the time to browse through, or update your own, Citizens of Craft Profile today.
