Call for Presenters!

Share Denver and Denver Handmade Alliance are teaming up for an awesome business development conference in January 2014, and we need your help!  We are looking for presenters to share their tools and stories to help fellow crafters reach their goals.  Share the story of how you finally quit your day job to inspire other crafters!  Promote your Etsy photography business and share a few tips to taking great product photos!  We’d love presenters with knowledge on taxes, social media, time management…anything!  Sign up here!  Hurry!  Applications are due on November 8!

We’d also love if you donated swag and business cards to participants, and we need someone to lead a fun morning craft activity.  Both are great opportunities to get your brand out to lots of people!  Email for more info about swag bags and crafts!

Fine Art
a visual art considered to have been created primarily for aesthetic purposes and judged for its beauty and meaningfulness, specifically, painting, sculpture, drawing, watercolor, graphics, and architecture.

The Denver Handmade Alliance is joining forces with the Metropolitan State University of Denver’s Center for Visual Art to bring you the 5th Annual Art by Craft Exhibit and we want you to enter!

The Art by Craft Exhibit is a collection of works that are created with or explore traditional craft techniques and concepts in the form of fine art. We are asking you to explore a craft based medium in the context of fine art, in other worlds elevating a medium traditionally known as craft to the level of fine art. Pieces can be in a variety of mediums, but must directly relate to craft in some way.

The Denver Handmade Alliance and the Center for Visual Art are curating the exhibit with the aim of showcasing the art of local and regional handmade artists.

Email for an application, or with any questions. Applications must be submitted by August 1st at the latest.
