Description

→ Representatives from arts and design, forestry, research and development sectors are all invited to attend this one-of-a-kind event! About Woven Networks Sharing Sessions is an online event happening on 30 August – 2 September. It will feature Woven Networks grantees and their work with forest-dependent craft communities across the Philippines, showcasing the role of craft in helping communities and forests to thrive. The event will focus on the stories of people working together across the Philippines and with the UK to create change through weaving networks that support each other.  It will culminate with the launch of a virtual exhibition that celebrates culture, communities and forests. Woven Networks - Craft changemakers conserving forests is a one-year partnership between the Forest Foundation and the British Council through its Crafting Futures global programme. It aims to strengthen the voices of local communities by highlighting their sustainable practices and vital role as artisans, thus growing forest resources and livelihood. Part of the programme is the Woven Networks Scoping Grants, that initiates new collaborations and supports projects that champion indigenous knowledge systems towards sustainable resource management and improved livelihood of craft communities. The four-day event is free but registration is required.
