Craft Northern Ireland's programmes, activities and initiatives support and promote the sector as an integral part of the region's economic and cultural infrastructure. It aims to strengthen, develop and champion the practice and awareness of contemporary crafts in the region and to build an integrated, entrepreneurial and vibrant sector throughout Northern Ireland.
