Crafting intercultural dialogue

Crafting cultural heritage: how to promote intercultural dialogue and diversity through traditional crafts” is the topic of the next session I´m organising with Dialogue Café Association in the framework of the Global Exchange of Crafts Makers.

See you in Évora, Lisbon, Novi Pazar or Rio de Janeiro!

Artesanía y desarrollo?

Parece que es hoy cuando iniciamos finalmente el ciclo.

Tras organizar el ciclo de creative hubs y emprendimiento social y la sesión de empoderamiento de mujeres e industrias creativas, con la red de Dialogue Cafés llegamos a la conclusión de que sería muy interesante organizar un ciclo sobre artesanía para debatir desde los aspectos más generales que le incumben, como los desafíos y oportunidades del sector, hasta aspectos más concretos como la internacionalización del sector o el diálogo entre tradición y diseño.

El arte y la artesanía siempre han estado ahí, el desarrollo también. Parece que después de 10 años, abro de nuevo el camino para casarlos.

A new challenge

One of the latest projects I´m working on, is the organisation of a global exchange of makers and crafters.


In the framework of my contribution to Dialogue Cafe Association and in cooperation with other team members based around the globe, we will launch a global cycle of exchanges focused on different issues affecting crafters and artisanship.

Culture and development have been at the heart of my professional path, so this cycle is just another step.

The first session will take place next 28 April. If you want to join in, let us know, maybe there is a Dialogue Cafe in your city!

 

 

Using creativity to empower women

Next thursday 25 March, I´ll be at Dialogue Café to moderate a nice session on women´s empowerment through creative industries.

In line with some ideas and projects I´m currently developing, I hope this debate will allow us to identify future initiatives aimed at promoting women´s leadership in creative sectors. Creative sectors as crafts, design, arts, fashion design.

Of interest?

You can join us in Évora, Lisbon, Novi Pazar and Rio de Janeiro (from 15h to 16h30 London time)
