Craft @ the Edge: A Handmade Future is a four day international conference designed to celebrate, energize and inspire Newfoundland and Labrador craft in all mediums. Scheduled to happen on the Bonavista Peninsula from October 1st to 4th, 2020, this conference will include engaging teaching sessions, artist talks, professional development workshops, pop-up markets and exhibitions. We are currently accepting proposals to fill curator positions for two separate group exhibitions.


As the inaugural day of Craft @ the Edge: A Handmade Future, the Innovation Symposium will examine the many facets of innovation across craft disciplines, creating a space for all craftspeople to learn, explore and connect.

This Innovation Symposium will provide an opportunity for craftspeople to connect with leading members of our community who support a vibrant world of craft. Craft @ the Edge: A Handmade Future is looking for speakers from the design, craft, art, business, science, technology, agricultural, municipal communities and beyond, to share their knowledge and experience through presentations and panel discussions. 

Help us explore innovation in product design and creation, in business management and growth, in communications, customer service and marketing.
