On the 31st of March, our project partner Ivan Manojlović (Nova Iskra) participated in the second edition of  MADE IN Platform for Contemporary Crafts & Design and presented the GLAMMONS project to professionals in wider CCS.

MADE IN is a research, design, and heritage platform that proposes new collaborative practices and knowledge exchange between traditional craftspeople and contemporary designers. It engages craftspeople, designers, researchers, curators, and theoreticians on a quest to pose relevant questions about the topics of heritage and production in today’s society through research and archiving of local crafts, conducting workshops and residencies, and promoting ideas through a traveling exhibition.

The conference organised by State Art Collections Dresden, Museum of Decorative Arts (SKD) is the official kick-off event of the Europe-wide MADE IN Platform for Contemporary Crafts & Design. The participating partners will along with international experts from the fields of crafts, design, and research discuss the future of crafts as an instrument for social and ecological change as well as manners of passing the knowledge of craftsmanship and heritage to future generations. How do we want to live in the future? How can a social community be shaped with the help of craftsmanship? How can craftsmanship, design, technology, and research work together constructively to achieve this? Project pitches, a panel discussion, and round tables will offer the opportunity to find out about the current situation and explore more with the experts present.

Venue: Japanisches Palais (Japanese Palace), Palaisplatz 11, Dresden
