HOUSEWARMING   CRAFT ONTARIO '19

 

HOUSEWARMING: Call for Entry
JANUARY 19 - MARCH 2, 2019
1106 Queen Street W., Toronto

Part of the Design TO festival, and Toronto Design Week

Craft Ontario Juried Member Exhibition
Deadline for entry: Monday, November 19, 11:59 pm EST

Setting up a home is an essential human experience, and includes traditions and customs that vary across different cultures, times and locations. With the movement of people across the globe, including growing urban centres and transitions to new countries, the establishment of new homes happens every day. Part of this process is defining the spaces we inhabit through the objects that we use. Housewarming explores these objects through examining what it means for an object to be both useful and meaningful, and how they can contribute to the many possible experiences of home.
