Craft Australia Forum 2011

Sustainability what does it mean?

To explore this field Craft Australia invites you to join in our focus on sustainability. This year Craft Australia will commission and publish articles in the CA enews highlighting sustainable craft and design practice.  An online forum addressing the issue is also planned for September where online discussions about models of sustainable practice will take place.

Feedback from the sector will identify the main areas of concern for makers. Craft Australia will make the findings from the focus on sustainability available to government and relevant stakeholders to future proof the capacity of craft and design creative micro enterprises.

What are your thoughts on sustainability?

Craft Australia is interested to know how you are tackling sustainability in your practice.
