Crafting Futures - ethical solutions to address global inequalities

Weaving connections between tradition and innovation, handmade and digital, rural and urban, cultural and economic

Crafting Futures aims to reduce inequalities and ensure craft is appreciated for economic, environmental, and social development. Active in 30 countries, the programme bridges divides by connecting female artisans, rural communities, designers and young leaders. It provides education and training opportunities, shares knowledge and expertise, improves livelihoods, and innovates creative heritage practices. Through local and global partnerships, it increases access to new markets, audiences, and connects the UK and countries worldwide. The programme responds to SDGs 4, 5, 8, 10, 12, and 17.
