Advocating for Change
We are saddened beyond words and deeply troubled by the discovery of the unmarked graves of 215 children at the Kamloops Indian Residential School.
We advocate that all CSDA members support the Calls to Action listed in the Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Committee: Calls to Action

Support the CSDA/CCAD
Volunteering offers incredible opportunities to CSDA/CCAD members and persons interested in the Decorative Arts. In addition to making a difference, it provides volunteers with opportunities to build relationships with like-minded people, connect with the Decorative Arts community, develop new skills, and hone existing ones. The list of benefits is lengthy and these opportunities are available to individuals who want to make a difference. Participation as a volunteer can be in person, by phone, or via the internet. Contact Rani Glick, Chair of the Membership Committee at email@example.com for more details.

2021 Holiday Ornament Campaign
Support the Canadian Society of Decorative Arts and our continued efforts to produce quality publications and events related to the decorative arts community.
Be a part of the gift-giving holiday season. Donors will receive a handmade one-of-a-kind Ornament from Lisa Young, who uses upcycled and vintage materials with a distinctly modern edge. Each of her unique pieces are handcrafted in her home studio in Riverdale, Toronto. Each ornament will include a festive ribbon and gift bag. Collect them, gift them, or exchange them with family, friends and colleagues. Ornaments are issued for donations of $75 or more (while quantities last).
Download the donation form here or make the donation by clicking on Donate Today or the link provided below and indicate you would like an Ornament in the comment field. (Note: A tax receipt will be issued for the value of your donation minus the value of the gift ($25). Donations of less than $75 will receive a full tax receipt.)
The CSDA/CCAD is supporting the craft community by commissioning a new ornament each year. Start your collection now!
