Training Tools for Artisans from #Creative Dignity

November 17, 2021

Creative Dignity is a movement that has brought together over 500 diverse creative producers, small enterprises, civil society organizations and professionals to energize the ecosystem that Indian artisans need in this time of COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 impact. Our focus is to provide Relief, and subsequently work on Rehabilitation and Rejuvenation* of the artisans in a bid to ensure their sustained prosperity. Millions of artisanal/creative producers were stranded with no sustenance in the lockdown’s aftermath. The pandemic enabled stakeholders of an otherwise diverse and dispersed artisan sector to collaborate and lay the foundation for an unprecedented voluntary network alliance.
