Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
Every other year, crafthaus awards a micro project grant to a crafthaus member regardless of their location, professional background, or chosen craft field. The grant is unrestricted and intended to provide assistance for an interesting new personal or group project.
Since 2011, crafthaus members supported diverse projects such as a women-led craft cooperative in Southeastern Turkey and an international group exhibition for artists with invisible disabilities.
All projects proposals are published on crafthaus without revealing personal information about the submitting party (no names, bios, credentials.) Every project is presented on its own merit. The public is invited to vote on the best idea. Students, established artists, academics, outsiders - every project is considered equally.
The crafthaus membership and the general public review all proposed projects and vote for the one they wish to see supported.
The grant recipient regularly updates on the project progress on crafthaus via a public blog. The membership and the general public are invited to follow the project from beginning to end, ask questions, and discuss the project directly with the artist/artist group during the implementation phase.
Only crafthaus members can submit a project.
Next Crafthaus Project Grant opens Fall 2016 - Details to be posted late Summer 2016.
