Makers, sustainability, marketplaces and regional development

UNESCO identifies handicrafts as a set of products that “are produced by craftsmen, completely handcrafted or with the help of hand or mechanical tools, provided the direct manual contribution of the artisan is the most substantial component of the finished product” and recognises that “the special nature of handicrafts derives from their distinctive traits, which may be utilitarian, aesthetic, artistic, creative, culturally significant, decorative, functional, traditional, religious, and socially symbolic and meaningful.”

Local craft makers contribute to innovation and economic growth in their regions through the application of old techniques, through the development of new products. Are they fulfilling the mission of engagement between business and regional identity? How they do it?

The Eugenio de Almeida Foundation, one of Dialogue CafĂ© Evora host and manager of the programme “Powering Arts and Crafts” proposes to organise a session on Makers, sustainability, marketplaces and regional development, which will take place on 28 May from 15h to 17h London time.

The session will bring together experts, makers, local and regional authorities, owners of marketplaces to discuss and share concrete knowledge.
