Craft Cubed Festival is Craft’s annual celebration of the handmade and the biggest coming together of the craft and design sectors of its kind in Australia.  This year the theme is Crafting Communities and will aim to showcase dynamic and creative communities through a multi-layered, open access festival.  Through this concept, we will highlight diversity, multi-disciplinary practice, hidden networks and meaningful connections which are forged through contemporary craft.
