The Craft Council of Newfoundland & Labrador offers numerous opportunities throughout the year to both members and non-members alike.


Having an exhibition at one of the Craft Council’s two galleries can have many benefits for a craftsperson’s career: important exposure, a formal opening, invitations to several hundred guests, media coverage, and access to a major market. Annually we accept applications for exhibitions for the next years programming, and we also have calls for entry for multiple exhibitions throughout the year. See below for current open calls.

The Craft Council offers various forms of funding to members for education and professional development. These include our:

  • Study & Workshop Grants
  • Revolving Loan Fund

Applications for our Loan Fund are open year-round, but our Study & Workshop Grants are applied for annually. Stay tuned below for current opportunities.
