GSRD Foundation Collaboration: The Future is Handmade

The GSRD Foundation and the Prince Claus Fund are delighted to announce a new call for proposals: The Future is Handmade: Re-designing Crafts. This joint collaboration invites creative entrepreneurs and young artists in Bangladesh to think ‘outside the box’ and dare to reimagine crafts.

Please note that the call for proposals closed on 20 June 2014 and is no longer accepting applications. The Prince Claus Fund and GSRD Foundation will announce the grantees in October 2014. 

The Future is Handmade: Re-designing Crafts Call seeks innovative proposals that breathe new life into traditional craft practices, that take the environment into consideration and strive to benefit the local community. The call invites creative entrepreneurs based in Bangladesh doing pioneering work in the field of crafts.

Why crafts? Artisanal practices reaffirm and define cultural identity. What makes craft unique and valuable is the preference for the human hand over the industrial process. Based on the rich craft heritage in Bangladesh, this collaboration seeks to encourage and build on the existing wealth of artisanship in the region. The Future is Handmade: Re-Designing Crafts invites creative people in Bangladesh to explore the ways craft can use tradition as a springboard for innovation.

The Future is Handmade: Re-designing Crafts fits with the Prince Claus Fund and the GSRD Foundation’s efforts to emphasize cultural entrepreneurship and vocational training. The collaboration supports innovative, quality and socially relevant projects. The collaboration is jointly funded by the GSRD Foundation and the Prince Claus Fund.
