This is an agenda for the future of Australian making, produced by the National Craft Initiative over a three-year period of engagement with the professional craft and design community. It is informed by the existing research and knowledge embedded within the key program partners: the Australian Craft and Design Centres (ACDC) and the National Association for the Visual Arts (NAVA); from direct consultations with leaders of the Australian craft and design community; and from the ideas and opportunities identified by makers themselves.
This report offers an evaluation of activities, research and insights into the current climate of the craft and design sector, identifying trends, challenges, opportunities and threats. It includes practical recommendations for strategic services for funding agencies, government and policy makers, and the sector itself to provides a vision for a strong future for the craft and design in Australia.
