Birmingham Souvenir Project

Shelanu: Women’s Craft Collective, supported by Craftspace is seeking a contemporary craft maker to support the development of a souvenir range which reflects Birmingham as the diverse, creative and contemporary city it is. You can download the information from the Shelanu page. The deadline for applications is Friday 5th September.

Deirdre Figueiredo comments on our successful inclusion in the Arts Council England National Portfolio 2015-18:

“We are pleased to be one of the 670 organisations who were successful in applying to be an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation from 2015 to 2018.

Craftspace is an award winning organisation, pioneering approaches to engaging a diverse public with world class contemporary craft. Sustained investment over the next four years will enable us to develop the craft sector, lever in further funds to provide opportunities for artists to produce ambitious new work and engage a wide range of audiences to participate in making.

In relation to our public engagement work, we are particularly interested in the themes of social justice, social innovation and ways in which craft can contribute to the strengthening and progression of civil society.

It will no doubt continue to be a challenging fundraising climate for the arts sector. Whilst it has been good news for Craftspace, we are sad that many excellent arts organisations with whom we collaborate will not receive funding from ACE and we hope that they will find a way to sustain their activities.”
