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.
Notice: This project has filled. Please contact the Craft Alliance Office to be placed on a wait list.
To further develop export markets for Atlantic Canadian craft producers, Craft Alliance will once again lead our CRAFT: Lab – Toronto Incubator Project to attend the Toronto Gift + Home Market trade show in January 2020. This will be a pan-Atlantic mission where Craft Alliance will lead the coordination and development of the project. The project will involve exhibitors from Atlantic Canada looking to expand their sales to Central and Western Canada. The Toronto Gift + Home Market is a wholesale trade show produced by the Canadian Gift Association and is held twice a year in Toronto, Ontario. (Previously known as the Toronto Gift Fair)
Approximately 5-8 Atlantic Canadian craft producers will be selected to participate in a Pavilion Showcase at the Toronto Gift + Home Market in January 2020. This project will fill quickly; applications should be completed and forwarded to Craft Alliance immediately.
Craft Alliance will lead a small group of 6-8 Atlantic based craft producers to attend the NY NOW trade show in New York, NY, from February 1-5, 2020. NY NOW is a 5 day trade show with set-up and travel days included in the project. Each individual participant will receive assistance for booth costs and related expenses under the project. Participants are responsible for their own travel and shipments of product samples to the NY NOW show.
