To position the UK as the global centre for the making, seeing and collecting of contemporary craft. We intend to position the UK as the global centre for the making, seeing and collecting of contemporary craft. Craft is a growing industry worth over £800 million and contributes to the UK's reputation as a world leader in creativity.
We act as an exchange for knowledge of, support for and expertise on contemporary crafts.
* Growing the markets where craft is bought, sold and collected: We produce a programme of high-level events for makers to showcase and sell their work directly to the public.
* Professional support: We run schemes to support both emerging and established makers and curators, and create conferences and seminars to encourage debate and share best practice.
* Research, information and championing craft: We provide an information service for anyone interested in contemporary craft and we research, through partnership, the contemporary craft sector to provide a national and regional overview and to highlight current issues. We manage our own Collection of crafts objects and publish Crafts Magazine six times a year.
* Exhibitions, Awards and Craft in New Contexts: We stage high-quality exhibitions in national and regional museums and galleries, and create opportunities for people to see contemporary craft in a variety of contexts.
