It is with a sense of urgency and a perennial mix of despair and hopefulness that the Manitoba Craft Council presents Eco-Craft, a creative, cross-disciplinary collaboration of artists and scientists striving to address what is arguably the biggest challenge facing our generation: climate change. The rapidly deteriorating environment – the pan-species, world-wide crises that human behaviour patterns have given rise to – needs the sincere and sustained engagement of the craft community and creatives of all stripes.
MCC expresses gratitude to each of the craft artists and scientists who engaged so thoughtfully and diligently in this collaboration: Alex, Alison, Ande, Carla, Connie, Danielle, Debra, Erica, Heather, Jennie, Jessica, Kevin, Lourdes, Olivia, Maddie, Mary Kate, Megan, melannie, Patrick, Poonam, Sandra, Shannon, Tibor, and Willow. Thank you for investing so much passion, intelligence, and creativity into efforts that will benefit our planet and all of its inhabitants. And, most importantly, thank you to the land, water, and air that give us life every day.
Eco-Craft was made possible through a generous Manitoba Arts Council project grant, with additional support through core funding from Canada Council for the Arts and a multi-year programme grant from the Winnipeg Arts Council.
