About the CSDA/CCAD


The Canadian Society of Decorative Arts/ Cercle canadien des arts décoratifs (CSDA/CCAD) is a national, non-profit organization founded in 1981 for the study, appreciation, and promotion of design and decorative arts in Canada. We believe that the celebration of material culture can bring enthusiasts, collectors, and experts together to share their knowledge and passion in community.  Further, we support the preservation, restoration, and creative re-purposing of objects.  Our scope embraces a wide range of cultural production from ceramics and silverware to craftivism and weaving, from fashion and architectural elements to musical instruments and transistor radios.
