The Center awards graduating seniors each with $15,000 in the form of a Windgate Fellowship.
The Center partners with museums to offer four Windgate Museum Internships for either graduate or undergraduate students who are aspiring craft curators. Interns work closely with museum staff on a craft collection, exhibition, or research project designed specifically for the internship. Since 2006, the Center has awarded internships to 21 graduate and undergraduate students from 10 museums including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
On March 22 from 7-8:30 pm, The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) and Asheville Area Chamber of Commerce will host a public meeting on affordable housing solutions for artists, craftspeople and makers. The meeting will provide the public with an opportunity to engage with and learn from Artspace, a national non-profit organization based in Minneapolis, MN that specializes in creating, owning and operating affordable housing and studio/business space for artists and creative sector businesses.
