Community Catalyst of the Year Award

Award description

Supported by the Marsh Charitable Trust

In heritage crafts, there are many people who do a tremendous amount on a voluntary basis. Whether independently, or as part of a craft organisation, these ‘community catalysts’ and volunteers put in huge amounts of time and effort, sometimes over many years to make a real difference to their craft. Their role is often unsung. The award winner could have volunteered their time on anything from event organising to campaigning to initiating new projects in the heritage crafts sector. This award is a chance to recognise such unsung heroes.

Anyone, including the community catalyst themselves, can nominate for this award. Finalists will be expected to attend the high-profile Winners’ Reception in November 2024.

The Marsh Charitable Trust, as part of their commitment to grassroots recognition, is working in partnership with Heritage Crafts in support of the significant work done by heritage crafts volunteers.
