      Craft With A Stranger: Public Event

      Inspired by the themes of cross-cultural communication and identity construction present in Crafted Strangers, CCCD invites local makers, writers, and creatives to “Craft with a Stranger”. Participants will respond to prompts in order to create new work inspired by the exhibition and be anonymously paired with a collaborator to create something together.

      This is registration for the public event on 10/28. Participation for the event has ended.

      Deadlines for participants:
      October 7: Pick up your kit from CCCD
      October 13: Deadline to create your 1st original work of art
      October 27: Deadline to create your 2nd work of art and write a letter to your anonymous collaborator

      Crafted Strangers is curated by the 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellows Matters Unsettled (Cass Gardiner and Quizayra Gonzalez) and organized by CCCD. The 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellowship was made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. Exhibition programming is supported by Donna and Ralph Briskin.
