Duodji and international opportunities

The seminar will contain presentations from the duodji organizations and institutions on how they work with duodji, as well as reflections from invited duojárs on how they see their work in connection to international opportunities. In addition, there will be presentations from organizations responsible for the internationalisation of handicrafts and duodji about international arenas and opportunities, as well as existing support schemes.

Through plenary discussions and coffee table conversations, we want to use this day to map the duodji practitioners' own needs and thoughts about the potential for international activity.

Feel free to forward this invitation to others in your duodji network.
