Made To Be Discovered 2023

May 1-25 at select locations

The Made To Be Discovered window installation programme is a new initiative for Crafted Vancouver 2021. This year we feature a small sample of hand-selected locations for your enjoyment. Pairing craft-based work and installations within interesting and often unexpected window space locations throughout Metro Vancouver, we engage with the public on a larger scale, inviting closer inspection and appreciation of work at eye-level and around the clock.

Under the creative direction of a visual merchandizing team, shops, studios​, hotels​, offices, galleries​ & other street front window locations​ are paired ​with outstanding work from a selected group of craft-based artist​s & designers​. What transpires is ​a​n inspiring ​walkable outdoor ‘gallery’​ paying tribute to the spirit of outstanding creativity and craftsmanship.

Made To Be Discovered locations are featured on this page and are also featured in the Events section of CraftedVancouver.com and the Festival Guidebook. An interactive map for our 2023 iteration will let visitors locate the installation sites and participate in voting for their favourite display.

We are already lining up installation spaces for 2023 when we will partner with the Craft Council of British Columbia to feature a diverse body of work throughout Metro Vancouver. We will begin the selection process of craft-based artists Fall 2022. If you are interested in featuring and supporting outstanding craft & design in your window space, please contact us for a chat at [email protected]

If you would like to discuss 2023 sponsorship opportunities for this initiative, or you would like your craft/design based work to be considered for the 2023 edition of Made To Be Discovered please contact [email protected]
