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 2024. 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.
Approximately 10-12 Atlantic Canadian craft producers will be selected to participate in a Pavilion Showcase at the Toronto Gift + Home Market in January 2024. This project will fill quickly; contact Craft Alliance for instructions to apply.
The Crafts Council, UK founded Collect in 2004 with the aim to build the profile and sales for collectable craft and to promote the very best galleries and artists in the field. It continues to be the only gallery-presented art fair dedicated to modern craft and design in the United Kingdom. Craft Alliance is planning an exhibition of Atlantic Canadian artist/makers to exhibit at Collect in March 2024.
