The Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) is the national agency for the commercial development of Irish designers and makers, stimulating innovation, championing design thinking and informing Government policy.
|Mission||To foster the growth and commercial strength of the design and craft industry in Ireland|
The Design & Crafts Council of Ireland (DCCoI) is the main champion of the design and craft industry in Ireland, fostering its growth and commercial strength, communicating its unique identity and stimulating quality design, innovation and competitiveness. DCCoI's activities are funded by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation via Enterprise Ireland. DCCoI currently has 64 member organisations and over 3,200 registered clients.
In collaboration with partner organisations, DCCoI convened Irish Design 2015 (ID2015) on behalf of the Department of Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and Enterprise Ireland. ID2015 was a year-long programme exploring, promoting and celebrating Irish design through signature events on the island of Ireland as well as in prestigious partner venues in international capitals of design and commerce throughout 2015.
The Design and Crafts Council of Ireland and Craft Northern Ireland designated 2011 as Year of Craft. The year marked the 40th anniversary of the DCCoI and was celebrated through a diverse range of dynamic events and programmes to showcase the very best of craft made on the island of Ireland. Today we're still continuing that celebration, highlighting craft events, festivals, workshops and more throughout Ireland.
If you are planning a craft event or activity, and would like to be listed on our events database, we would love to hear from you. You can get involved by posting your event on www.craftinireland.com
