SITselect aims to inspire and engage a wide and diverse audience and enable high profile exposure and promotion for contemporary craft and design and the makers we work alongside. SITselect actively encourages innovation and experimentation through our high quality programming and commissions that reach a wide national and international audience. SITselect is an organisation that delivers high quality activities that engage the public, encourage debate and enquiry related to craft and applied arts, support artists’ practices and support the promotion of creative profiling in Stroud and the Cotswolds. SITselect operates as a not-for-profit organisation and our work is ambitious, dynamic and forward looking; presenting inspiring work that challenges preconceived thoughts and brings pleasure to our audience. We have an annual Festival in may and are launching a new Showcase 3 day event in Cheltenham in October.
We publish Selected Journal: a new bi-annual journal celebrating innovative, contemporary craftspeople working with passion, its aim is to present a taste of the brilliance and the beauty that is around in the UK and the pleasure individual makers, designers and thinkers bring to our world.
