BLUESTONE COLLECTION, WHO ARE WE?
We are teachers, lawyers, designers, makers, writers, historians and curators committed to fostering the innovation and exhibition of contemporary craft in Victoria and throughout Australia.
We believe that as makers and members of the craft community, we must actively engage with the arts, discover and build connections among object makers, and be an active part of our cultural history.
We want to foster new craftspeople, encourage greater ambitions and support the continued growth of exhibition-standard work.
We aim to influence institutional collecting through brave acquisition choices, raise the profile of contemporary crafts and its practitioners locally, nationally and abroad, and reverse the decline in funding of the crafts in Australia today.
