Craft Hub is a European project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme focused on Craft in the context of cultural heritage and its continuing relevance in contemporary practice.
This opening conference focuses on 3 pillars of sharing best practice and practical advice in the form of creativity, heritage and connectivity and aims to inform participants about how they can actively engage and benefit from the Craft Hub Project.
The project implementation is based on the investigation and documentation of craft skills and processes, their application in creative practice across Europe; questions of cultural specificity & individual motivations of practitioners.
Main goals of the project are:
– the creation of a Digital Repository in the form of a material library and multi-media content
– to heritage concerns by exploring and documenting at risk & lost/ recovered Craft skills & processes
– to identify cultural/transnational attitudinal differences to Craft and to test the emerging Repository
Main planned activities:
– 42 transnational maker residencies
– 305 days of outreach work
– 1 festival
– 7 exhibitions
– 2 conferences
