Future Voices: celebrating diversity

This major international exhibition showcases 27 exhibit proposals from eleven countries, and represents a total of 37 practitioners and approximately 250 pieces of work. Digital, Radical, Innovative, Fine and Process - the exhibition exposes a diversity of activities within the crafts and takes stock of its fast changing cultural and creative role.

'Future Voices: celebrating diversity' opens to the public on 04 July 2007, in the Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design, University of Dundee, Scotland and runs until 03 August 2007.

Exhibit Proposal Invitation

The international conference New Craft - Future Voices invites exhibition proposals that reflect the diversity of contemporary craft. In particular, proposals that demonstrate the range of spheres where craft is located, for example, material based craft, the craft of writing, designing spacecraft or the craft of medicine and science. The exhibition aims to reflect new contexts for interpretation of craft as a contemporary phenomenon. Craft can be interpreted as the craft practitioner, craft processes and practice and or the crafted object. Proposals concerning craft as education and/or processes are particularly welcome.

The exhibition will be connected to the conference and will provide a window on contemporary craft, a focus for discussion, an indicator of quality in craft and a visual means of articulating the issues that need to be addressed.

Proposals can come from individuals and or groups, and could consider for example new forms of craft, new collaborations, new forms of patronage, new contexts for interpretation of craft and new ways in which digital media and technology can enhance the communication of craft.

In order to submit an exhibit proposal you need to register on the site to allow access to the submission system. Please go to the 'My Account' page and follow the instructions found there.
