CraftNet is an informal network of meetings, events and exchange to look at and share ways of developing and promoting contemporary craft. All are welcome – from commercial galleries to local authority museums, from organisations and trusts to individual makers, artists, curators and all those with an interest in craft.
Making Places: branding a craft town
How can contemporary craft contribute to the identity, community and economic impact of towns? A panel of speakers will address ways in which places have branded their identity and used cultural and creative content to define themselves as distinctive, attracting local support and incoming visitors.
