What’s On

Inaugural CCBC Citizen of Craft Award

People who physically make objects understand that the making is only one aspect of creating culture: we need admirers and friends who are knowledgeable and thoughtful in their reception of our work, and who champion its grand diversity. This award is specifically for someone who is not a craftsperson, but without whom the craft community would be sorely diminished.

The Craft Council of British Columbia has chosen Sheryl MacKay, CBC host of North by Northwest Program, to receive our first Honorary Citizen of Craft Award for her enthusiastic, long-term support for the craftspeople of this province. By celebrating their work, Sheryl invites a broader audience to understand the skill, intelligence and heart of our community – much broader than we could ever cultivate ourselves. The Craft Council of British Columbia is devoted to gaining recognition for this vibrant territory within the arts sector and we are deeply grateful for Sheryl’s ongoing appreciation.

We will be presenting Sheryl’s award on 7pm May 9th prior to our final 2016 Art of Craft lecture, Vancouver Public Library, Peter Kaye Room, 350 West Georgia, Vancouver.
