New England Best Practices Mission 2019 (Nova Scotia Only)

Craft Alliance will coordinate and manage a group of Nova Scotia craft producers, museum representatives and book publishers to attend a Best Practices mission in Boston in December 2019. The project will be supported by the Province of Nova Scotia and participants will be eligible for travel assistance funding.

This mission will be of interest to include individual craftspeople, artisans and other producers that feature product relevant to the museum sector and that have the ability to produce customized products for specific museum sites. Museum representatives are also encouraged to apply, as they will learn about best practices to use in their own facilities and programs.
