Craft Council of British Columbia 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.
Since 1973 we have been making craft more significant in the cultural life of British Columbians and Canadians. Through our public gallery and social enterprise shops on Granville Island,and at the Vancouver Airport Crafthouse, we exhibit and interpret contemporary objects in ceramic, glass, fiber, metal and wood that honor innovation in art, craft and design and celebrate materials and processes.
As a membership-based organization, CCBC welcomes all those who are interested in or curious about craft. Many individuals and institutions belong to CCBC – artists, teachers, scholars, collectors, gallery owners and professionals in related fields in British Columbia. This diversity is well represented in CCBC’s governance through its Board of Directors, which is elected annually by the members.
