New Craft: Future Voices (2007)* was an international conference and exhibition organised as part of my post-doctoral study called ‘Craft as a Form of Mindful Inquiry‘.** The processes and outputs were fundamental aspects of the social learning within the Mindful Inquiry methodology. Taking place over a 18-month period (including pre and post event responsibilities), it offered deep insight into the intellectual dialogues that go with craft practice; multiple forms of craft; the range of traditional and digital methods currently being employed; awareness of the material, technological and cultural aesthetics of craft practice; alternative ways of approaching collaborative and interdisciplinary frameworks; the various ways people discuss and emphasise craft and, the visual impact of craft research as a new form of craft practice.
