Crafts Study Centre Business Plan 2018

VISION : TO BE A NATIONAL CENTRE FOR CRAFT RESEARCH, EXHIBITIONS AND COLLECTIONS

The Crafts Study Centre (CSC) is a charity registered with the Charity Commissioners (261109), and a fully accredited museum (Arts Council England, 2013). It was formed in April 1970 with the aim of ‘the advancement of the education of the public in the arts and in particular the artistic crafts’.

The The CSC has acted since 2000 in a formal partnership with the University for the Creative Arts according to the terms of a Joint Agreement. The Joint Agreement sets out management arrangements and responsibilities on the part of the University and the Trustees of the Crafts Study Centre. It is reviewed at five-yearly intervals, and the present version of the Joint Agreement was signed by the Vice Chancellor Professor Bashir Makhoul and the Chair of Trustees Alison Britton on 18 August 2017.
