  • Which acquisitions are you particularly proud of?
  • How can craft organisations promote and encourage the collecting of craft?
  • What impact does the acquisition have on the artist?

Every two months, we seek views on the state of craft in Australia, including international exchanges. The conversation is rounded off with a cooee around the states to hear of recent news, events, projects, exhibitions and issues. This is a one-hour Zoom event open to WoCCA members through a registration link sent in our email newsletter.
