A symposium about CRAFT moving Forward. Despite the upheavals and economic struggles for all artists and makers, I anticipated a symposium that could give direction to the future of craft.
Before the symposium, I was so excited and asked, "What is Craft Forward?" The topic was prescient, and I committed ASK Harriete to sharing this information with a wider circle.
Parallel posts were put in a Crafthaus group to spark discussion. Isn't that the value and benefit of the Internet?
Lydia Matthews in her closing remarks ask us:
"How can we continue this conversation?"
"How do you move Craft Forward?"
"What do you want to move forward?"
"What do you leave behind?"
Can we "Carry the banner of craft forward?"
Before I write my final post for this symposium on ASK Harriete and Crafthaus, I am wondering....did I miss a beat at Craft Forward?
Did I misunderstand their agenda?
Was the list of speakers and the presentation addressing Craft Forward?
