This conference explores the question: What does craft look like in relation to community and tourism? In order to create a craft identity, artists and organizations are engaging and experimenting within culture and community in an effort to attract and retain tourist audiences. Placemaking will highlight the role of contemporary craft culture in strengthening and encouraging community development. By exploring the positive impact of craft practice on both physical and virtual communities, we’ll share information on craft’s role in enhancing the sense of belonging, understanding, and appreciation of community members, leading to happier, healthier, more positive social interactions.

Join us in Nova Scotia, where you’ll encounter five days packed with educational experiences and networking opportunities with people from all over Canada!

Whether you represent a Craft Council, a Guild, an Educational Institution or otherwise: This conference is designed for you!

Just interested in the social stuff? Join us for FREE for the Craft Social, an evening of networking and celebration where we will present the 2018 Robert Jekyll Award for Leadership in Craft at a secret location in downtown Halifax. RSVP in the 'tickets' section above and watch for more details soon!
