Join IndoGenius as we engage with aspects of designing, creating, sourcing and promoting items related to artisan craft. You will meet artisans, designers, entrepreneurs, business leaders and students to discuss ways in which the recent revival of consumer interest in handicraft is affecting India’s handicrafts market and consider threats and opportunities faced by artisans as they seek sustainable and more prosperous livelihoods. Through these interactions and more, find fresh inspiration and unique opportunities for collaboration in fashion and textiles. The program also includes cultural visits, events and performances that add perspective and context to on-site learning.
