Culture in the Making

The first CultureCraft exhibition launched August Craft Month 2013 as part of the inaugural UK City of Culture in Derry~Londonderry.

36 of Ireland’s leading craftspeople/craft makers were invited to contemplate the notion that one’s culture has an impact beyond sentimentality and to create a piece of work in response to this reflective investigation.

The exhibition was officially launched by President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins.


“Culture has been defined in a number of ways, but most simply, as the learned and shared behaviour of a community of interacting human beings.”
