Together with partner Dutch Design Week, Crafts Council Nederland has been putting the spotlight on making for years. With the inspiring group exhibition HOW&WOW in VEEM at Strijp-S, we present the importance of crafts.
From wood carving to polyurethane moulding and from young maker to seasoned craftsman; HOW&WOW presents all dimensions of making.
Crafts Council Nederland is the platform and expertise center that strengthens, innovates and broadens creative craft, both in the Netherlands and internationally. We ensure a revaluation of crafts and make them future-proof. We do this together with a large community of maker-designers, craft professionals, museums, workplaces, companies, the government and academies.
During Dutch Design Week 2019 we highlight the meaning and power of making on the basis of five current themes:
- Innovation from tradition
- New materials and new applications of techniques
- Sustainable materials and production processes
- New future heritage & cultural identity
- Social innovation
