Micki Mackenzie Education Craft Bursary


Scholarship Value: $4,000
Awards Available: 1
Award Deadline: Jun 1, 2022

The Micki MacKenzie Educational Craft Bursary was founded in 2019 by Micki’s husband Murray and their children, Nicole and Ross, as a living memorial to a wonderful woman who possessed an incredible eye for design, craft and the arts of all kinds. Micki gave her time and energy to many community causes and the Crafts Association of British Columbia (now known as the Craft Council of BC) was particularly near and dear to her heart.

Working with Gail Rogers, Executive Director of the CABC from 1974 to 1991 and the CABC Board of Directors, Micki, along with an extraordinary group of individuals, worked countless hours to secure the funds for the construction of the building that is the current home of the Craft Council of BC and CCBC Shop & Gallery. It was a major project with a lasting benefit for craftspeople.

The family is honoured to be able to provide this award in Micki’s name in order to assist individuals in their pursuit of a career in the field of craft and to help promote the development of excellence in crafts in British Columbia.
