    Crafting Futures Argentina has focussed on the development of research into good practices in the design and crafts sector, with the aim of improving the relationship between designers and artisans. The research phase was undertaken during 2020 and into 2021 in collaboration with the UK partner Rachel Kelly, Manchester Metropolitan University. The engine of Crafting Futures in Argentina arose from the identification of a problem that crosses the craft and design sector in several regions: the complexity of the link between both practices. Both in Argentina and in other regions of the world, there are wills that drive ways of working collaboratively to generate better conditions in both sectors. This project seeks to put them in dialogue, recognizing their actors as cultural agents, allowing a joint reflection that strengthens mutual understanding. The objective of this programme is to support the development of best practices between crafts and design, by collecting information that includes different perspectives and points of view of artisans and designers. We seek the vision of the experience of those who make, work and collaborate in an artisan tradition or from the practice of design. We want to understand how traditions, cultures and identities shape the experiences of different creative work communities.
