FEATURED MAKER INITIATIVE
Knit Social and Knit City Vancouver are committed to nurturing, growing and strengthening our relationship with Indigenous peoples of Canada. We gratefully acknowledge that Knit City takes place on the traditional un-ceded territory of the Coast Salish people.
Knit City Vancouver recognizes the distinct and unique place Coast Salish artwork and artistic traditions have in Canada and we are excited to announce the creation of a Featured Maker booth for Knit City 2019.
The Featured Maker application form is open to all Canadians 18 years old and over who self-define as Coast Salish. The application will be assessed using an Indigenous-centred approach, meaning that it will guided by Indigenous values and world-views and be reviewed by a panel including indigenous individuals before it is entered into a lottery.
The individual/company whose name is chosen from the lottery will receive a 10x10 vendor booth at the Knit City Marketplace for the duration of the Knit City weekend, October 5 & 6th, 2019.
Many thanks to Caroline Dick for her assistance with this initiative.
The application form can be found here. Applications will be accepted up until June 1st, 2019. Recipient will be notified via email by June 15th, 2019.
