Meet Our Team

Our passion for outstanding creativity and craftsmanship is what drives us

About Us

We’re a team of passionate craft enthusiasts, curators, advisors and volunteers. We see a tremendous opportunity to increase the value and relevance of outstanding creativity and craftsmanship through the platform of the 25-day Crafted Vancouver festival. Working year-round to revive our culture’s appreciation for quality goods, we facilitate a connection between our festival audience and those who make, feature, support or sell fine craft.

We’re thrilled to support and collaborate with exceptional Event Partners & our Strategic Partner team.

The Crafted Advisory Team

Meet our knowledge philanthropists. Crafted Advisory Team (CAT) members are skilled, exhibiting craftspeople, experts, or craft collectors. They play a crucial role in the success of Crafted Vancouver. By acting as advocates of their discipline, each member works closely with our Executive Director, helping to achieve a balanced programme with as much variety and interest as possible throughout the festival. Our CAT are a great resource for festival information and familiar faces at festival events. And we’ve made it easy to add them to your social networks.
