Craft Optimism: a curated climate conscious makers’ market
April 24, 2021 - May 1, 2021Free
Craft Optimism is an online marketplace featuring beautifully made, hand-crafted American goods that educate the public about climate change or inspire or model a sustainable response to climate change. Organized by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee (SWC) in collaboration with Honoring the Future, the event supports grants to the Smithsonian Institution.
Artist items must be created in a manner that helps to address climate change by fostering energy and water conservation, waterway protection, stormwater management, tree preservation and protection, use of solar or wind energy, waste reduction, use of recycled or repurposed material, urban gardening, or other appropriate measures.
