The conference will be an excellent opportunity to:
- Discuss about the need to maintain history and culture in crafts.
- Learn from each other’s experiences as we solemnly embrace innovative new directions in craft making.
- Upgrade the method by which we teach, learn and create crafts & design in the fast-changing landscape due to rapid urbanisation.
The aim of the conference is to create a forum to discuss the technological, artistic and scientific achievements in the areas of crafts and design in India. The conference would provide an excellent opportunity to document the feedback on the advancement in craft designing in India. The conference will also serve as a platform for networking among artisans, freelancers, academicians, Government officials, NGOs and industry executives working in craft and allied areas.
Jaipur is founded by Maharaja Jai Singh in 1726-27, after whom the city is named. Jaipur is a touristic place, boasting the heritage status on crafts, arts, culture, city planning and delicious foods. The average temperature is mild in November. We hope that all of you will have an excellent time in Jaipur.
