Creating a stage to showcase the talent of their creative participants, Makers Unite aims to raise awareness about the importance of equality and social inclusion. Their work has been showcased at the Venice Architecture Biennale (Roof 4 Humanity), during Amsterdam Fashion Week (Refuse Magazine) and at Stedelijk Museum (Solution or Utopia: Design for Refugees).For the HOW & WOW exhibition a team of creative newcomers from Makers Unite has partnered up with Crafts Council NL and the renowned Dutch ceramic company Cor Unum for the production of Crafting: the New and the Local. A presentation blending ancient Syrian crafts of laurel Ghar soap making with contemporary Dutch ceramic techniques of glaze re-use (R-Glaze). The result of this crafted collaboration proposes a dialogue questioning: What is the role of crafts in enabling more inclusive societies?

Organized by Makers Unite

Makers Unite is a platform for social inclusion providing equal opportunities to newcomers & locals by making products with a story that matters.

We believe that making together leads to dialogue and trust. By the power of making we connect people to real opportunities. By offering people a physical place to meet, and a valuable activity, their social network grows. In co-design we transform the life vests into new products, which are worth having.
