EXPRESSION OF INTEREST - demonstration or workshop

The Cultural Craft Group of Partners strives to promote handcrafted craft and art that supports the storyline and history portrayed on the Bonavista Peninsula. 

As we continue to showcase our craft industry for our tourism market and building on the success of past festivals, we are organizing another CULTURAL CRAFT FESTIVAL at The Coaker Factory in Port Union, which is perfectly situated between Historic Trinity and Historic Bonavista on the Bonavista Peninsula. This year, festival will coincide with the Bonavista Biennale and will be held over a two-day weekend on August 24 & 25, 2019.

This indoor event has a street festival atmosphere, complete with food and music and will focus on the promotion and creation of quality art & crafts both traditional and contemporary.  In this regard, are seeking craft producers & artisans interested in providing craft demonstrations and/or workshops that engage festival goers of all ages.  Professional fees based on the CARFAC fee schedule will be negotiated.  

If you are interested in working with us in this regard, please submit an application before March 1, 2019.  For all things craft on the Bonavista Peninsula, follow us on twitter @culturalcraft, check us out on the web at, or telephone/text us at 709-464-7345.
Please forward your complete contact information, an artisan statement and complete description/ details of the demonstration or workshop, including estimated timeline.  Expressions of interest must indicate how it will engage visitors.

Applications will be accepted until March 1, 2019 

Applications chosen may not be selected based on first come, first served but will be selected based on needs of the Festival Planning Committee.
