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 professional craft artist, but without whom the craft community would be sorely diminished.

To celebrate Craft Year 2020, CCBC invites all regional & community arts councils, craft organizations and artists to nominate an individual that has made a significant impact in their community for craft and the artists who create it.

The award winner will receive a one of a kind work of craft which will be presented at the 2020 CCBC AGM in Vancouver.
