In collaboration with the Maker Art project (ERDF) and the RRREMAKER project (EU) and the Provincial Tourism Board of the Diputación de Granada.

Throughout the event, different collaborative experiences developed by craft professionals with companies from other productive sectors such as fashion, film, or wine, among others, will be shown as examples of good practices that are currently being developed in our country and that are a model to follow for other professionals seeking new market niches, or join a new way of understanding the economy in a society that is increasingly demanding and aware of sustainability and its environment, where the throwaway culture disappears and we are encouraged to add to grow, where cooperation and km0 are encouraged.

Undoubtedly, a first class event aimed at both craft professionals and public and educational managers, as well as researchers and students of artistic education, who wish to learn or deepen their knowledge on the different subjects covered.
