CRAFT: LAB - Toronto Incubator Project

Toronto Gift Fair - Congress Centre, Toronto, ON: January 29 - February 2, 2017
To further develop export markets for Atlantic Canadian craft producers, Craft Alliance will lead a new project called CRAFT: Lab - Toronto Incubator Project to attend the TORONTO GIFT FAIR trade show in January 2017. This will be a pan-Atlantic mission where Craft Alliance will lead the coordination and development of the project. The project will involve NEW first-time exhibitors from Atlantic Canada looking to expand their sales to Central and Western Canada. The TORONTO GIFT FAIR is a wholesale trade show produced by the Canadian Gift Association and is held twice a year in Toronto, Ontario. Approximately 8-12 Atlantic Canadian craft producers will be selected to participate in a Pavilion Showcase at the TORONTO GIFT FAIR trade show in January 2017. As the timeline is very short, applications should be completed and forwarded to Craft Alliance immediately. Contact Bernard for more information.

Halifax, Nova Scotia: February 4-6, 2017
The gallery@acts was launched in 2011 and is now in its 7th. The project involves the development of a gallery space at the ACTS show, which features the work of contemporary craft makers in a gallery exhibition atmosphere. The project has been developed in partnership with our craft industry partners. Over the past 6 years we have featured the work of 85 makers, showing over 300 pieces of work. We have also presented 32 Internationally known galleries from Canada and the United States. The work shown was very high-end contemporary work of interest to both private and public galleries, museums and collectors' groups. Contact Greg at for more information.
