Ornamo is a member of NNCA Nordic Network of Crafts Associations.
The Nordic Network of Crafts Associations (NNCA) was founded in 2010. The network fosters collaboration and dialogue between its members, strengthening the field of contemporary crafts across the Nordic region and beyond.
The NNCA’s activities are twofold: it conducts meetings to discuss political, social and economic issues relating to craft artists and the fields of contemporary craft in the Nordic region. Secondly, the NNCA produces and participates in projects to promote and mediate Nordic contemporary crafts in an international context.
The NNCA consists of: Danske Kunsthåndværkere og Designere (Denmark); HANDVERK og HÔNNUN (Iceland); Konsthantverkscentrum (Sweden); Konstnärernas Riksorganisation (Sweden); Norske Kunsthåndverkere (Norway); Norwegian Crafts (Norway) and ORNAMO (Finland).
The NNCA has received long-term network funding from the Nordic Culture Point for 2015-2018 and Opstart funding for 2018 from the Nordic Culture Fund.
