“Celebrating Traditional Crafts,” is project that stands out for its unique approach to preserving and promoting the rich heritage of traditional crafts. Unlike traditional cultural events, our project offers a hands-on experience. Participants will have the opportunity to work alongside skilled artisans, weavers, farmers, seamstresses, and shoemakers, witnessing the craft in action. Our project transcends a passive encounter with traditional crafts. It fosters a deep cultural exchange between urban and rural communities.
As participants engage with the villagers and learn the craft, they will also have the chance to share their own perspectives and experiences, creating a mutual learning opportunity. One of the highlights of our project is the creation of a video by participants. Participants will not only try their hand at traditional crafts but also record it and record a traditional song – piece of our cultural heritage, ensuring that it is preserved for future generations and it brings together the artistic and the practical, merging the past with the present. Through this initiative, we aim to empower the local communities of Lendak.
By promoting traditional crafts and culture, we bolster the economic viability of these communities, helping them sustain their way of life and pass it on to the younger generation.
