Cu at C2: A Fundraiser in Support of Manitoba Craft
Saturday, February 25th, 2023 | 7-10pm
C2 Centre for Craft, 1-329 Cumberland Street (close to the Burton Cummings Theatre or the intersection where Cumberland meets Donald Street)
The Manitoba Craft Council (MCC) is thrilled to present the Cu at C2* Fundraising Auction in support of craft and its makers in Manitoba. Originally a celebration of the partnership that gave rise to the C2 Centre for Craft, each year, friends of the MCC gather at an event thematically inspired by the anniversary gift connected with that year; for 2023, it’s Copper!
On February 25, 2023 at the C2 Centre for Craft, MCC will invite the community to celebrate Manitoba craft. This year, CRAFT and CRAFTSPEOPLE will be firmly in the spotlight through a silent auction of fine, contemporary craft set in the beautiful Shirley Richardson Craft Gallery in the C2 Centre for Craft.
Find the catalogue of auction items online HERE.
In addition to a silent craft auction, the evening will include nibbles and non-alcoholic drinks, a cash bar, a raffle for Stars and Ice tickets and a unique opportunity to distill your own essential oils using your own materials or those provided in copper stills under the guidance of our friends at Abode. The event illustrates the vitality of craft in Manitoba, highlights MCC supporters, and celebrates artistic talent and passion within our community.
(*Cu at C2 is a play on both the symbol for copper on the periodic table and texting shorthand for “see you”…but you probably knew that already!)
In addition to an art auction, we are also hosting a raffle! Enter to win tickets to the 2023 Stars On Ice Tour while supporting Craft in Manitoba. Find out more and purchase your tickets HERE
