Kickstart Your Career at One of a Kind

Since 1975, the One of a Kind Show has been helping artists and artisans from across the country to make a living out of their passion—and we are not alone in this endeavor. This section celebrates the educational institutions and organizations of the Canadian art and craft community who work to teach, foster talent, grant opportunities and increase exposure of the uniquely talented artists and artisans working today. Since its debut at the 2011 Spring Show, the Craft Community of Canada section has partnered with these institutions to provide complimentary spots in the Show to recent graduates to exhibit and sell their work.

New This Year!

We are reinventing this section with a unique display set-up that will showcase the exciting new exhibitors in this section! You’ll be in a complimentary turnkey booth (approximately 50 sq ft) where you can show and sell your work.

We’ve also moved the application online, to make it even easier to apply for this amazing opportunity. Please review our information package for complete details on what you will need to submit in your application package. Note: Craft Community applicants do not need to submit a booth display or payment information for the $500 deposit, but will need to provide the name, title, phone number and email address of your reference at your nominating institution who we can contact during the jurying process.

Exhibitors are responsible for providing company signage, display, and electrical costs. Participating institutions will receive branded signage and space within the display to showcase promotional literature.
