Rare opportunity to share views on New Zealand craft

Craft Aotearoa Charitable Trust and the Dunedin School of Art at Otago Polytechnic - Te Kura Matatini ki Otago are delighted to invite all those interested in New Zealand craft to the Dunedin launch of the 2012 National Craft Research Project.

This is the first major craft research project to be undertaken in New Zealand and aims to identify how the wider public engages in craft activities as well as profiling the craft sector itself. A broad range of views are sought from members of the public interested in craft, craft practitioners, students, teachers, craft industry groups and organisations, craft galleries and retailers, curators, online craft communities and more.

Come along and share your views on craft in New Zealand at the present time, and then take the online survey at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/CraftAotearoa2012

About Craft Aotearoa:
Craft Aotearoa Charitable Trust is a new, national organisation that aims to create and promote opportunities for the New Zealand public to have increased access to craft research, exhibitions, events, and education and training opportunities across a broad range of craft disciplines.
