the craft council of british columbia

The Craft Council of British Columbia’s is a charitable arts service organization which supports all stages of artistic practice in the craft sector; creates opportunities for artists to exhibit, sell and produce art; provides a voice for artists and craft organizations and aids in the development of active communities around craft. We have a strong, consistent membership base, comprising individual craft artists (emerging, mid-career and established), craft guilds, arts organizations and supporters of craft throughout the province and some across the country and the US.  Now in its 50th year, the CCBC is the only craft sector service organization in BC that fulfils an educational and public mandate along with regional and national objectives in developing opportunities for craft artists; the art form and the craft sector as a whole.

All of the Council’s activities are targeted to support member’s practice and increase the audience for contemporary BC craft.

CCBC acknowledges that the land on which we work is the unceded shared traditional territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
