Professional Congress of Crafts

Know more
From the ferial show to MOMA: How do I position myself? How do I project?
The Professional Congress of Crafts was created with the aim of generating a platform for reflection and debate about crafts, as established in the Strategic Plan for Handicrafts promoted by the Catalan Trade, Crafts and Fashion Consortium. A meeting point for sharing resources, tools, values and experiences; for strengthening the sector and fostering the exchange of ideas and synergies between different creators and producers.
