About this event

Q&A session on being a Make! Craft! Live! partner

Make! Craft! Live! is a year-long programme of exhibitions, learning events, fairs, and digital activities that celebrate the value of craft to empower, enrich and connect our society. Taking place from October 2021 – October 2022, the aim of the programme is to connect the public with craft at venues across the UK, including: craft studios, museums, galleries, cultural venues, schools, community centres and online.

This session is to tell you a bit more about Make! Craft! Live! and how to become a partner. We will start with a 15-minute presentation about the programme and application process and then open to questions from participants.

Being a Make! Craft! Live! partner

  • We are principally looking for a range of activity that is free or low-cost and could include:
  • Live craft experiences that have been significantly compromised during the pandemic such as craft fairs, markets, and open studio events.
  • Craft exhibitions or events (talk, workshop, or similar).
  • Activities that provide opportunities for participation – via workshops, drop-in making sessions, and maker demonstrations.

We are particularly interested in projects that can demonstrate that they engage with one or more of the following areas:

  • Spotlighting, supporting or showcasing makers from Black, Asian, and ethnically diverse backgrounds, LGBTQIA+ makers and makers who identify as having a visible or non-visible disability.
  • Championing ideas of equity and social justice.
  • Highlighting new cutting-edge practice that seeks to push or challenges the boundaries of craft.
  • Prioritising collaboration and collective ways of working.
  • Exploring crafts’ positive impact on mental health and wellbeing.
  • Demonstrating how craft can help protect and restore our environment and address issues of climate injustice.
