23 Mar B1-AKT crafts for change with SONU
B1-AKT is proud to announce the partnership with SONU – Sorbonne pour l’Organisation des Nations Unies.
Crafting for Change is a project from the Development Division from Sorbonne for the United Nations Organisation SONU. This project aims to help communities in distress through the development of craftsmanship.
In order to achieve this, three workshops linking design students and craftsmen take place, two in Argentina and one in France. In Paris, refugee craftsmen are currently working with design students from The SorbonneUniversity.
Later this year an exhibition will take place showing the work from the three workshops where the public will be able to appreciate our craftsmen’s work and will be able to purchase some of the pieces.
The aim of it all is to create a positive image for these communities, refugees and rural craftsmen in order to enhance their social and economic integration into society.
