The project is part of the long-term project "Krásná práce", which works to reintegrate crafts and folk production into the contemporary culture of the Czech Republic, to make the work of the masters of crafts more visible, to network them and to connect them to the young generation.
The project aims to establish an online platform (website/social network) which will connect experienced craftsmen with stakeholders in the area of tourism and product design, interested public and possible successors.
The goal of the project is to create a user-friendly virtual environment for artisans to present their products, share their stories and express their needs. The main output - a social network - is a format close to the young generation, therefore it is a perfect way to reach them and arouse their interest in traditions and crafts.
In collaboration with 1 Norwegian expert and 4 partner art colleges, a collection of design objects will be created by master craftsmen together with product design students.
