[ONLINE] Research into the craft sector and craft education in Georgia
This seminar will run online on Thursday 4th May at 2pm (GST)/11am BST (UK)
The seminar will present the research undertaken by Arts University Plymouth between 2019 and 2023 as part of the British Council’s Crafting Futures programme. This wide-ranging project encompassed research into the craft sector and the development of new education initiatives. Our report evidences the strength and diversity of the craft sector during a period of enormous changes, and the willingness of educators to embrace new ways of thinking, teaching and learning.
The project was carried out with the support of many partners: government departments, education institutions, crafts and arts organisations and companies and, of course, the individual practitioners who generously shared their work and stories. It demonstrates the importance of craft production to national culture, and suggests ways in which the craft and education sectors can develop together.
This seminar will run for no more than 90 minutes.
