World Crafts Council Europe launches Crafting Europe Manifesto

The World Crafts Council Europe and Ateliers d’Art de France have unveiled a new six-point manifesto aiming to support the future of craftsmanship in Europe. The Crafting Europe Manifesto, developed after discussions with WCC Europe members across the continent and launched at Révélations in Paris, sets out an action plan to support craftsmanship in the key areas of training, status and economic development during the years 2020-27. It intends to address the challenges that are currently facing craftsmanship, recognise the sector’s contribution to Europe’s society, heritage, culture and economy, and provide the necessary support to enable it to develop commercially. The manifesto is already supported by WCC Europe members and partners including the Michelangelo Foundation. The organisation is calling on European policymakers and anyone involved in the sector to read the manifesto and commit to implementing the six measures considered necessary to guarantee the future of craftsmanship.
