Crafting the Future works to increase access to creative enrichment by connecting BIPOC artists with opportunities that will help them thrive. We are partnering with Youth Arts Organizations across the country to provide their students with scholarships to renowned Craft schools and pre-college programs. Not only are we creating pathways into the field for BIPOC artists, but we offer continued support once these artists have arrived. This means connecting people with professional opportunities like internships and commissions that will help establish their networks and plant roots in the community.


Open to individuals, organizations, and businesses.
