Every year CERF+ and our supporters across the nation, participate in, as well as organize, dozens of events that build awareness and/or generate critical financial resources for the organization and the artists we serve. These activities—workshops, conferences, shows to name a few—are an introduction to CERF+ and what we do, broaden our base of support, and are opportunities to have fun and to celebrate. Often, events are staged by friends of CERF+, some at regular intervals while others may occur only once. Some have become annual favorites for giving by supporters of CERF+ that are enthusiastically anticipated by their customers.

Listings in this section have information about current and coming events, as well as annual and past events sponsored by CERF+,  individual artists, and other independent businesses committed to the support of artists working in craft disciplines:

We welcome your involvement and urge you to contact us if you would like information about how you might host an event that benefits CERF+.
