Craft Australia Petition


Dear friends and supporters of Craft Australia,
Since we were notified on 12 October that the organisation will not receive any more program funding from the Visual Arts board of the Australia Council beyond the end of December 2011, we have had overwhelming response in support for Craft Australia. We thank you for this amazing show of strength for craft and design practice.  Responses have come from our readers and supporters from all over the world.

We are sending you this update to keep you informed of the developments in our campaign to save Craft Australia and how you can continue to help us.  

Make your voice heard in support for craft and design.
  • Spread the word, pass this notice on to your friends and networks, get them to do the same.
  • Sign our online petition. The more people that sign, the stronger our argument for the importance of a national craft and design organisation.
  • Write a comment on our blog, tell us how this will impact on you.
  • Write a letter to the Visual Arts Board and tell them what you think, please send us a copy as well so we are all on the same page
  • Write a letter to the Arts Minister, the Hon. Simon Crean MP
  • Write a letter to your local government member
With your help we can show that craft and design matters.
Again, thank you for your ongoing support; we will keep you informed of our progress.
