Make room Vancouver food-trucks cause come 2015 (just in time to celebrate Craft Year 2015) Vancouver may be sporting craft carts around town!!! Heather Deal, Vancouver City Councillor, is bringing a motion that will have city staff exploring the possibility of bringing handmade craft to Vancouver streets. Making BC handmade craft, instead of imported manufactured items, readily available to tourists from around the world and/or Vancouverites just making their way around the city – is a great way to support our cultural community and we commend Councillor Deal on taking the initiative to bring this motion to the City Council. While the logistics and viability are still up in the air, CCBC hopes that the City’s process reflects the established practice of having a Standards of Quality that assesses craftsmanship as part of the process around the selection.  As we always welcome the opportunity to profile BC craft and the artists that make, we are very excited at the prospect of bringing the handmade to the streets.
