Keeping Traditions Alive through Social Enterprise

“Without craftsmanship, inspiration is a mere reed shaken in the wind” – Johannes Brahms

Fresh Start of the Project

From a European to a local level, social enterprise is recognised as making a valuable contribution  to building social cohesion/wellbeing and economic growth. 2018 was designated the European Year of Cultural Heritage, highlighting the value of keeping the traditions found across Europe alive and ensuring enriched communities. The project contributes to both of these key aims and has been structured to ensure the results can be replicated in full or part, both within and beyond the partner countries.

This two year project started on September 30, 2019

The aims and objectives of this project are: 1) to pass traditional craft skills from older people to young people; 2) to teach  young people the principles and practical steps to setting up a social enterprise; 3) to support them to use the craft skills and social enterprise knowledge to make and market craft goods.

Kick-off Meeting and First Steps

The first meeting of project partners took place in Arad, Romania, 2-3 December, 2019.
