MADE IN is a research, design and heritage initiative encouraging collaboration and knowledge exchange between craftspeople and contemporary designers. The aim of the project is to rediscover crafts tradition and production methods and educate craftspeople and designers about material and immaterial culture, thus creating new, authentic and more sustainable conditions for practicing design in collaboration with craft workshops.

The MADE IN project promotes European craft heritage and innovative contemporary design to general public through many different activities: research and mapping of crafts, public conferences and expert seminars, design/crafts residencies, workshops, publications and exhibitions, as well as the development of an online platform, which will facilitate the transmission of knowledge and provide professional development opportunities for craftspeople, designers, curators and professionals.
