Cape Breton Island Craft Sector Benchmark Study

Craft is a vital part of our Island’s economic and social fabric. Working with the Cape Breton Centre for Craft and Design, the Vibe team completed a Cape Breton Island-Unama’ki wide craft sector benchmark study that will inform future programming and supports within the sector. The project included the completion of an extensive survey targeted to professional crafters and in-community engagement with Indigenous artisans (all five Unama’ki communities). The final report documented specific supports required to advance and support the interests of Island artisans / entrepreneurs.
