ACC hosts a national conversation exploring craft’s relevance as a powerful catalyst for navigating and making meaning in an increasingly complex present.
As a national advocacy nonprofit committed to connecting and galvanizing diverse craft communities, ACC invites artists, thought leaders, craft practitioners, curators, civic leaders, writers, critics, media makers, social activists, and all kinds to explore, challenge, and celebrate craft’s impact in American life today.
Together, we invite you to mine the generative spirit on which the ACC was founded, as we identify and confront the potentials in contemporary American life, affirm the necessity and power of making things by hand, and build a healthier craft ecosystem for moving forward.
Our collective conversations over the three days will guide subsequent retreats and programs, begin penning solutions, and collaboratively set a national stage for ways to take action and record our progress. Visit our web site for complete information
