Our Partners

Our work depends on the support of meaningful, long-term partnerships.

We endeavour to evoke a sense of wonder and connection through our programming and projects. We consider the immediate impact of our work and how it can continue to engage, inspire, and create lasting cultural impact. Craft is supported by partnerships across local, state and federal governments, corporate, media, cultural and hospitality sectors. Our partners are passionate about what they do and share our vision in building Australia's craft and design future.

Government Partners

Craft is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria; the Australia Council, the Federal Government's arts funding and advisory body; and through the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.

Project Partners

Craft works closely with our partners on annual projects and outcomes. From supporting Awards and exhibitions, to creating innovative experiences which explore intersections between food and design, fashion and sustainability and more. We work closely with our partners to build lasting, creative relationships. Craft's Project partners enjoy a range of benefits, including increased profile in the arts and cultural sector, partner events and behind the scenes access.

All Craft's partners are acknowledged on our website, and at all of our events

Our generous partners support Award categories, providing essential opportunities for artist working within contemporary craft disciplines.
