International opportunity for Canadian craftspeople

CALL FOR ENTRY:Unity & Diversity
DEADLINE: March 31st, 2009

The Canadian Crafts Federation / Fédération canadienne des métiers d'art
encourages craft artists, designers and makers from across the country to
submit their work for consideration in Unity & Diversity, an exhibition of
the best of contemporary Canadian fine craft.

This is a terrific opportunity to participate in an international project.
In September 2009, Unity & Diversity will travel to Cheongju, South Korea,
as the feature exhibition in the Canadian Pavilion at the Cheongju
International Craft Biennale - the largest fine craft biennale in the
world. A high-quality, multi-national event, the Biennale has invited
Canada to be the guest country for this year, an honour which the CCF/FCMA
has graciously accepted. Unity & Diversity will be a wide-ranging, truly
Canadian event intended to direct the eyes of the world towards the
contemporary craft of our country. A second showing of select pieces will
travel beyond the Biennale, to be showcased at the Vancouver Museum in
British Columbia during the 2010 Winter Olympics. At the biennale alone,
the exhibition will be seen by over half a million visitors... imagine
just how much exposure your work could receive.

Don't pass up this once in a lifetime opportunity. Every maker in every
region of the country is encouraged to enter. Please download the pdf
attachments and pass this call for entry on to others in the arts
community who may be interested.

soon as it is available.
