Cultural Innovation
at Work

Innovation in craft was critical to the survival and daily life of Newfoundland & Labrador residents. Expanding on our cultural heritage and to celebrate Canada's Craft Year 2020, Craft @ the Edge: A Handmade Future will showcase creative and ground-breaking approaches in many craft mediums. Looking at contemporary craft through a historical lens, Craft @ the Edge: a Handmade Future will bring together makers and thinkers from multiple disciplines to take the pulse of the province’s current and developing craft practices, uncovering the exciting potential and broader context of making.

After much consideration, the Craft @ The Edge Steering Committee, has made the difficult decision to postpone and reconfigure the conference programming that was scheduled to take place in October 2020 on the Bonavista Peninsula. COVID-19 has changed how we all have to operate and the event in its original format would not have been able to move forward as it was originally structured.

Craft @ The Edge: A Handmade Future programming, including workshops, keynote speakers, events and exhibitions, will be rescheduled in mixed digital and in-person formats throughout 2021 in order to maintain safe social gathering procedures and to mitigate risk in the case of future COVID-19 outbreaks. At present we are assessing programming on a case-by-case basis on whether or not it fits into our new structure, both safely and as a high-quality craft experience.

March 22, 2019
Women across Labrador have converged on Happy Valley-Goose Bay for reasons just as important as sport at the Labrador Winter Games. The Labrador Winter Games Cultural Pavilion is holding classes this week for clothing designers, many of whom own and operate their own businesses stretched across the four corners of the Big Land.
