Stories of European Talents


Stories of “talent” by European craftsmen is a special campaign dedicated to European craftsmanship. Professional craftsmen in all brands will be selected to narrate their story to an international audience in Paris, from 2 to 5 November.

The goal of the initiative is to create emotional involvement and engagement among the audience by sharing positive experiences of self-accomplishment. It will help building a different opinion about craftsmanship and stimulate potential interest for careers in the craft area.

The event will be disseminated trough the mad'in europe website and social media, and presented at the International Cultural Heritage Fair (Salon International du Patrimoine Culturel in Paris), from 2 to 5 November 2017.

To participate, craftsmen are invited to send information according to the available online form.
