Melbourne VIC
1 to 15 August 2015

In 2015 Craft turns 45 years old, and to celebrate this milestone we are pleased to launch the inaugural Victorian Craft Award. The Award is a biennial event facilitated by Craft Victoria in the pursuit of presenting and celebrating excellence in the crafts. The award welcomes emerging, mid-career and established craftspeople across the state of Victoria and welcomes applications from individuals utilising craft skills, processes and materials.

Up to 100 finalists will be shortlisted for the inaugural exhibition across four venues; Craft Victoria, fortyfivedownstairs, Sofitel on Collins Melbourne foyer and 1 Spring St Foyer.

This is a truly unique opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge Victoria’s Craft community, create accessible opportunities for emerging and established practitioners to network and lobby for the value and significance of the art of the handmade and an opportunity for key supporters to demonstrate ongoing commitment to the Australian craft community.
