Deirdre is Director of Craftspace, which works in partnership with makers and artists, audiences, venues and a diverse range of organisations to push boundaries and perceptions around contemporary crafts practice, touring exhibitions and public engagement.
Developing Contemporary Craft
Sarah Fisher, Chair of the Board of Trustees, says:
‘It’s great that Deirdre has joined us, bringing vast expertise in craft, diversity and audience development. At Axis we’re particularly keen to develop our support for makers and represent the UK contemporary craft scene on the website.
We’re sure Deirdre will be instrumental in helping us achieve these goals.’
Deirdre says she’s keen to support Axis as it
‘is not only an invaluable resource but also a critical and lively forum in which to debate current issues in the visual arts. A virtual lab to pollinate ideas and find collaborators.’
