The opening conference will focus on 3 pillars of sharing best practice and practical advice in the form of creativity, heritage and connectivity and inform participants how they can actively engage and benefit from the Craft Hub Project.
Craft Hub is a European project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme focused on Craft in the context of cultural heritage and its continuing relevance in contemporary practice.
This will be addressed through a comprehensive and exciting program to allow the creation of new craft work/experimental investigations into process and material supported by 42 transnational maker residencies, 305 days of outreach work, 1 festival, 7 exhibitions and 2 conferences.
The Inspiring Creativity Panel will discuss the creativity process and each panellist will share a presentation on what inspires them in their creative process and what advice they would give to people in the creative process.
Presentations from each of the panellists will be followed by a facilitated discussion and questions and answers from the participants.
