[ CENTRE ] To be a lightning rod and reference point in arts-based practice and research. To form, then document, current experimental practices.
[ RETROFITTING ] To activate the possibility of redoing, reworking, revisiting concepts and materials as a methodology for testing, building, making, and sustaining communities, practice and work.
[ FAILURE ] To approach risk with awareness, but without fearing unexpected results. To use openness, observation, and adaptation as a productive trajectory and test space into an unknown future.
[ TECHNIQUES ] To refine and integrate the practice of arts-based research, making and execution. To explore the [re]distribution of wealth through making-based practice. To be self-sustaining in this work.
Printmaking Studio + Stage / Meeting Area
C.R.A.F.T. is renovating a studio to be equipped for screenprinting and letterpress. There will also be an outdoor stage for performances and gatherings. We are exploring what it means to be a net-zero energy studio. We would like to invite people to come and work in these spaces.
C.R.A.F.T. is buoyed by many individual and institutional supporters as we begin. We thank you and look forward to sharing the results of our collective vision soon.
C.R.A.F.T. is a BC Society based on Ahswinnis Reserve, Port Alberni, Canada.
