Network / Together Young Ambassadors

An educational initiative of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini in partnership with the Michelangelo Foundation, the Young Ambassador Programme is a defining characteristic of our biennial flagship event, Homo Faber. In collaboration with applied arts and design schools and universities in our network, we select the most enthusiastic and motivated young artisans and designers to come to Homo Faber and enrich the visitor experience with their passion and knowledge.

The first edition of our Young Ambassador Programme at Homo Faber 2018 brought together more than 100 students of 23 nationalities, from 27 education institutions in 15 countries. Students had the chance to forge valuable connections with professionals and peers, while visitors came away with a real appreciation of the vibrant future of craftsmanship.

In working alongside other students of different disciplines, approaches and nationalities, our Young Ambassadors gain valuable insight into each other’s specialisations, broadening their horizons and benefitting them for the rest of their careers. In this way, the programme helps to ensure that designers and artisans will work together for years to come.
