Craft Scotland has an exciting opportunity for makers, curators and craft industry professionals to join our Advisory Group.

Your voice matters and we are keen to hear from those who are passionate about the future of the Scottish craft sector.

The Advisory Group advises the Craft Scotland team and Board twice yearly on new developments, initiatives, challenges and opportunities within the Scottish craft sector that we should be addressing. The Advisory Group is separate from our Board and members participate on a voluntary basis for a two-year term.

There are currently 4 places available on the Advisory Group. To ensure as broad a representation of the sector as possible the group will be representative of different backgrounds, gender, disciplines and use of materials, experience, stages in career, business models, and geographical spread.

Additionally, we are interested in finding people for the Advisory Group who bring with them a passion, knowledge and experience of these areas:

  • Lived experience of being a Black, Asian, Mixed Heritage and Person of Colour, refugee, D/deaf, disabled, working class and/or LGBTQIA+ maker
  • Climate Emergency work and sustainable making
  • Community work, health and wellbeing, mental health and resilience 

Key dates

Closing date: 5pm, Monday 19 October 2020
Interviews: Week of Monday 26 October 2020
Next Advisory Group meeting: Week of Monday 9 November 2020
