CCCD Project Grant!

Such wonderful news! I have received a project grant from the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD). Based in Asheville, North Carolina, the CCCD “advances the understanding of craft by encouraging and supporting research, critical dialogue, and professional development in the United States.”

The CCCD grant will allow me to conduct research and interviews for the third chapter of my dissertation. That chapter examines the pottery, basketry, and woodworking workshops held among the North Carolina Cherokee and Mississippi Choctaw during the 1960s and 1970s. After gathering archival documents about these workshops, it will be fruitful to spend time at the tribal archives and speak with community members about these workshops.
