The Craft Project wishes to document tangible anthropology i.e material culture of a place and comment on its relevance in the contemporary space. We also wish to bring together a community of cultural travelers and craft entrepreneurs and create a collective of common motivation. The Craft Project celebrates Diversity in culture through objects, folk arts, crafts, and design.
In phase one we initiated a dialogue by interviewing and collecting stories from makers, designers, curators, retailers and brands. These people are from various parts of the world thus giving us a dynamic viewpoint on the subject. In phase two, we wish to publish stories of primary research from major textile regions of India. Our vision is to translate this research project into a physical space by-
We wish to print newspaper style magazines that will be distributed free of cost to institutions,
organisations and craft enthusiasts to make these stories reach a larger audience.
We wish to create a travelling exhibit of these stories further engaging an audience in this dialogue.
Create a platform that fosters this collaborative environment between makers, designers and brands.
