The Growing Ontario Craft Community North project was based on formal participant evaluations, comments and general feedback from artists and the community at large. The project provided artists with a variety of spaces and places to share business skills, further develop sustainable livelihoods in the culture sector and raise awareness of the sector’s quality and vitality across the North. The project delivered a series of six professional development workshops and meet and greet events, a symposium, and a juried travelling craft exhibition. A Northern Steering Committee comprised of professional artists from across the region assisted in guiding the project.
