As a national leader in the craft and design sector, Craft believes in the power of creativity to enrich our everyday lives. Our mission is to celebrate the shared human impulse to shape the world around us. The act of crafting, as old as human nature itself, is endlessly reimagined in the hands and minds of our makers.
Craft is committed to being a platform for makers to experiment and push the boundaries of material practice. The community of makers, designers and artists we work with are at the forefront of everything we do. You can make a direct impact to these extraordinary makers by donating to Craft.
Forging a career as a maker can be incredibly challenging, but together we can make a difference. Craft’s programming and membership activities are dedicated to supporting and advancing creative careers – through exhibitions, events, artistic and professional engagement, mentoring and insurance. With the end of financial year approaching, please donate to Craft to ensure that Australian makers can keep creating incredible work.
Your tax-deductible donation, large or small, is truly appreciated and will make a genuine difference.
