This NEW festival explores how craft is evolving in the 21st century across objects, jewellery, furniture, fashion and contemporary art. New approaches, ideas and experimentation will be showcased and welcomed from today's makers through exhibitions and events across Victoria and online. Programs explore how today's makers express their contemporary ideas whether it be through new technologies or centuries-old techniques.
Presented by Craft Victoria, the festival is looking for submissions from makers and artists, guilds, galleries, businesses, venues, publications and creative producers interested in being a part of this event.
