Identity, Collaboration, Sustainability: an online, international festival of craft builds on themes developed through Applied Arts Scotland’s international craft exchange project, including three international residencies that brought together makers from Mexico, Canada, Thailand, and Scotland to experiment and create new work. This exchange culminated in the Meet Make Collaborate touring exhibition, which was to be hosted at MSVU Art Gallery in 2021 but was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The practices and work of the international collaborating makers inform the program of the festival, and are accompanied by symposium presentations and panels discussions on the topics of identity, collaboration, sustainability, and more.

Organized and presented by Applied Arts Scotland SCIO, Edinburgh College of Art, MSVU Art Gallery, and The Dr. Sandra Alfoldy Craft Institute at NSCAD University. Funded by Creative Scotland and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
