Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation is proud to announce a $5000 Advocacy grant to the Canadian Crafts Federation for the 2018 national conference “Placemaking”. Through this grant, the Board of Directors seeks to enhance the careers of New Brunswick craft artists of all disciplines.
Congratulations to the CCF/FCMA for the presentation of a robust program of speakers, panel discussions and craft gallery tours co-inciding with the award winning arts and culture festival Nocturne, and in partnership with the Aboriginal Curatorial Collective’s national conference.
“Placemaking is about the re-invention of community with the community, for the community. It is about enlivening public spaces, and no one tackles that quite like the cultural sector.”
– Alison Murphy, Executive Director of Craft NB
“The Sheila Hugh Mackay Foundation is a fantastic partner for this program, and an excellent example of an influential placemaker through their work in supporting and encouraging new avenues and initiatives in the arts.”
– Maegen Black, CCF/FCMA Director
