Craft Sector Strategy
Framework for Progress is the product of collective effort and a shared understanding of the creative and commercial potential of Cape Breton artisans and craftspersons. It offers a picture of Cape Breton’s craft sector and presents a framework for growth and advancement.
Under the direction of the Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design, early in 2004, a team of independent consultants engaged craft producers at all levels, sector leaders, government officials, community and economic developers, cultural industry proponents and other key informants forging this go forward plan.
