Artisan Show & Sale

Cando is looking for Aboriginal artisans to display and sell their art & crafts during our upcoming conference on October 23-26, 2017 to be held at the Fredericton Convention Centre in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

In addition to participating in the general conference sessions, delegates enjoy the opportunities Cando provides to experience local Aboriginal culture including entertainment and arts / crafts. This will be an excellent opportunity to showcase yourself and promote your artwork to over 300 delegates from across Canada. Artisans are required to be available to display and sell their products from during the duration of the Conference. Artisans are responsible for their own travel & accommodations for the conference.
