OPPORTUNITY: Call for makers for Crafts Council's Make:Shift  Make Shift 2014. Tas Kyprianou

Make Shift 2014. Tas Kyprianou

9 September 2016

Crafts Council are looking for makers, designers, artists, scientists and engineers working at the intersection of craft, science, technology and engineering to take part in this year’s Maker Breakfast at their Make:Shift conference on 11 November. 

Make:Shift is a  two-day innovation conference that explores craft, innovation and the future of making.

Maker Breakfast will take place on the second day of the conference. It will be an hour long session of ten-minute ‘show and tell’ presentations by six emerging and established makers over breakfast. It aims to give a snapshot of cutting-edge practice.

They are looking for...

  • Makers, designers, artists, scientists and engineers that work in the intersection of craft, science, technology and engineering
  • Specialists and practitioners that apply their practical abilities in other sectors, experiment with new forms of making, materials or use innovative processes.
  • You could be developing and manipulating new materials, building robots or building with robotic arms and drones, designing with living systems and micro-organisms, applying making skills in developing new materials or working with smart textiles and e-threads.

The successful applicants will be expected to deliver a 10 minute presentation on the morning of 11 November during Make:Shift at the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester. Maker breakfast participants are encouraged to bring examples of their work - objects, samples, swatches, prototypes - to show and demonstrate during the session.

What you get?

Access for both days of Make:Shift, speaker’s fee of £180 (+VAT if applicable), accommodation for one night, and return travel to Manchester from within the UK.

How to Apply

Email innovation@craftscouncil.org.uk with a statement (max 500 words) about your practice and experience and how you meet the criteria of the call-out, together with up to five photos of your work.

Deadline for applications: 12noon 15 September 2016.
