MADE TO BE DISCOVERED

On behalf of all participating Event Partners of Crafted Vancouver 2019 we acknowledge the traditional, ancestral, unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy ə̓ m (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl í̓ lwətaʔ (Tsleil-Waututh), Semiahmoo, Tsawwassen , Katzie , Kwantlen , Kwikwetlem , and Stó:lō First Nations on which Crafted Vancouver takes place. We're grateful for the opportunity to meet here and we thank all the generations of people who have taken care of this land and recognize and deeply appreciate their historic connection to this place.

Traveling to some of the best craft events in the world this past year has given us new inspiration for our second edition of Crafted Vancouver, the only month long craft-based festival in North America. We are forging exciting new ground as we activate enriching craft connections. Our diverse group of Event Partners illustrate that craft truly is everywhere. Here is an opportunity to meet exceptional local & international artists creating beautiful craft-based work. This year we are very excited to present over 70 events, including 16 solo & group exhibitions, student shows, workshops, demonstrations, pop-ups, mini symposium, guided culinary & cultural tours, studio & showroom events, artist talks & receptions, a live podcast and more. Our Spotlight on Mexico welcomes 6 visiting artisans in a number of events. Our newest Signature Event, Crafted in the City is a series of events taking place at shops and showrooms featuring and supporting exceptional craft-based work. Returning are Crafted Interiors, Meet the Makers, REEL Crafted Film Festival and Crafted in the Valley. Check out our Programme Guidebook and website. Enjoy the wonderful programme. Our team and Event Partners look forward to meeting you this May. Thank you for your support! Carrie Ross
