Introducing the Craft Innovation Jumpstarter

The Society of Arts + Crafts 2023 Jumpstarter program consists of four (4) grants of $3,000 each: two (2) in the summer and two (2) in the winter. The summer awardees were announced in June. The upcoming winter deadline is November 5.

The purpose of the grants is to support craft artists who reside in New England to pursue new directions or advance new ideas in their work. The goal of increasing equity, inclusion and diversity in the craft field will be an important focus of the program.
