  • 7th Annual North Carolina Think-Tank, April 3-5, 2008

    The 2008 North Carolina Craft Think-Tank marked the seventh year CCCD has convened leaders in the field of craft. The number is limited to no more than 24 participants to allow for a meaningful dialogue on each of the topics. Topics discussed are introduced by participants then opened to the full group for discussion. Initiatives identified in past retreats have led to project and programs for both CCCD and institutions throughout the country. The 2008 session major points were recorded by CCCD director Dian Magie and assistant director Katie Lee and outlined in this report.
