Makers, sustainability, marketplaces and regional development

UNESCO identifies handicrafts as a set of products that ‚Äúare 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‚ÄĚ and recognises that ‚Äúthe 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.‚ÄĚ

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 Caf√© 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.

In today¬īs increasingly virtual world, making things by hand using centuries-old techniques, traditional crafts provided with a new design approach are fulfilling the market of online business and also starts-ups.

The main goal of the cycle Global Exchange of Crafts Makers is to promote exchanges and dialogue between different crafts makers around the world with the aim, in one hand, of identifying the challenges and opportunities of this promising creative sector in future economies, in the other hand, promoting a dialogue and transmission of know-how between traditional and innovative artisans, between senior and young generations.

In this framework, Dialogue Café Association and its members are organising a session on SME Management for creative minds with the aim of providing makers with key information on how to launch or strengthen their business and sharing information on toolkits and tools on business sustainability.
