About Us

"Citizens of Craft: The Podcast", produced by voicEd Radio and the Canadian Crafts Federation, brings together the voices of craft artists, curators, educators and collectors who speak off the cuff about craft practice and its role in their lives. Podcast guest speakers are, truly, the “Citizens of Craft”. They are masters in their own right, chasing techniques that have been in use for thousands of years, or exploring new technologies that have just begun to push the boundaries of art. They appreciate and create objects with meaning, history, and purpose - rejecting the mass manufactured lifestyle of our time to capture something more authentic. Each episode, hosted by Canadian Crafts Federation Director, Maegen Black, addresses one of ten manifesto statements from the Citizens of Craft movement, and animates the story of craft through the values that this movement upholds.This project is made possible through the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
