Crafthub launches a public vote to select the favourite Showcase pieces exhibited during the ‘CRAFTHUB International Exhibition – Investigating craft practices across Europe’

The Crafthub exhibition has travelled across Europe, welcoming thousands of visitors in Matera (Italy), Paderborn (Germany), Thessaloniki (Greece), Lisbon (Portugal), Carlow (Ireland) and Swansea (Wales). The tour will finish in Oslo (Norway) from the 26th October to the 9th November.
It has been a wonderful opportunity to showcase a jury-selected range of Contemporary Craft from across Europe. Over 100 craft practitioners have contributed and participated in this process!
Alongside these Showcase pieces, the exhibition has featured a sample of the emerging project outcomes, including experimental material library samples; a selection of tools and raw materials illustrating process; film tutorials and maker interviews; as well as a Soundscape, weaving together workshop sounds. A Crafthub catalogue is being curated to share the project achievements, including a dedicated chapter to all showcase pieces that have been exhibited.
Courtesy of the project coordinators Carlow County Council from Ireland, there is a cash fund of €2,500 available to award selected Showcase Exhibitors.
The first prize will be €1,000, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th prize will be €500 each.
The Crafthub team is asking for help from the public to make this selection!
An online public vote will be launched on the 26th September – 26th October and the winners (with the most votes) will be announced on the 1st November during the Crafthub Conference – Transformation: Effect and affect of craft in society Oslo (Norway).
