Department of Culture Media and Sport(DCMS): Stop the removal of craft as a category

what doesn't get counted, doesn't count 

 This petition has been created by Applied Arts Scotland; 'by makers for makers' and whilst the proposed changes are a devolved issue, we feel strongly that the removal of the term Crafts will have a detrimental effect on the sector as a whole as individual businesses will be put in categories outside of government data on creative industries and therefore the voice of 23,000 craft businesses will no longer be heard; we will be feeding back the results of this petition to the Crafts Council as part of a co-ordinated feedback by the sector.
