Founded in 1996, The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the field of craft through fostering new ideas, funding craft scholarship, and backing the next generation of makers, curators, and critics.
Since 2010, CCCD has supported the careers of emerging curators with an interest in contemporary craft through its Windgate Museum Internship Program. This year, CCCD announces a new initiative that will support curators by giving them resources, space, and technical assistance to nurture their talents.
The Curatorial Fellowship is a yearlong program created to give emerging craft curators a platform to explore and test new ideas about craft. Three Curatorial Fellows will be selected to fully develop and mount their proposed exhibition in CCCD’s Benchspace Gallery & Workshop, located in Asheville, North Carolina, during the 2017 exhibition season. The Curatorial Fellows will work with CCCD staff to produce the exhibition, develop didactic material and an exhibition catalog, and deliver a curatorial talk.
