We love working with artists and doing our best to provide timely, relevant, and needed support. We value relationships in the arts and culture field, with national service and grant partners as well as organizations that work with craft artists or that are part of the craft discipline network. We also value the local connections we have by being a remote staff which allows us to be connected and inform the national conversation. While we have a hierarchical structure, we work in a shared space contributing to the ideation, evolution, and connection of the work. We honor each other’s humanity.
