Craft City Tour Dates
— 2019 —
To foster new craft-based approaches to STEM research
To support craft practice, experimentation, and applications outside the field of art
To advance innovative research in craft materials (e.g. wood, metal, fiber, clay, glass)
To explore the inter-relationship among the fields of craft, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics
To ensure the safety of our community and to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the Center for Craft has temporarily suspended our public programming, including our Craft City Food & Art Tour schedule for spring/summer 2020. Following state and federal recommendations, the Center looks forward to announcing 2020 tour dates as soon as possible.
We can't share our favorite local brews, craft cocktails or handmade wares with you right now, but we hope you'll consider supporting our 2019 tour partners during this unprecedented time! Please consider visiting their websites to purchase a gift card, an item from their shops, or to make a donation today.

The North Carolina Arts Council launched its work in 1967 as awareness of the importance of arts to all citizens was becoming a national movement. In the ensuing nearly 50 years the arts in North Carolina have come to be valued as one of our state’s most durable and productive assets.
