Transferring ceramic art hobbies into a future income
With the kick-off meeting held last December at the University of Ardahan, in the far north-east of Turkey on the border with Armenia and Georgia, the Erasmus+ project “Women & Art” officially started. The project is approved by the Turkish Erasmus+ program authorities and sees the University of Ardahan as Lead Partner, the Ankara Point company as organizational consultant and the AEuCC (European Grouping of Cities of Ceramics) as consultant in the sector and communication.
The project involves 5 countries and 9 partners for 2 years: wmn&ART aims at supporting inactive women in developing home-based micro enterprises, with a particular focus on ceramic art and craft activities, increasing wealth in European society.
Following the collaboration and promotion actions carried out by the Associations of the Cities of Ceramics in Europe and of the original members of AEuCC, following the initiative started by the city of kunstat, the Czech association was funded. It consists of 3 cities: Kunštát (www.kunstat-mesto.cz/), Dubí (www.mesto-dubi.cz) and Levín (www.mestyslevin.cz).
The Czech Asociation of Cities of Ceramics – AczCC was founded on 25 August 2016 in Kunštát with the participation of the mayors of the three founding municipalities.
Cerasmus+ is a european project co-funded by the program Erasmus+, which was born from the initiative of AEuCC – European Grouping of Territorial Cooperation “Cities of Ceramics” and has started in 2017 with the goals to protect the European traditional heritage, to modernize the ceramic sector and to develop vocational training in ceramic craft industry enhancing work based learning models.
Cerasmus+ faces the challenges of global competition, loss of skills, difficulties of getting into the market and lack of financial resources and economic capacity, relying on three pillars: Heritage, Innovation and Network.
The final meeting of the Cerasmus+ project was held on 21-22 november 2019 in Spain, hosted by EASCM (ceramic school of Manises), a hundred years old institution born to provide competences to the workers of the ceramic industry and evolved to a high school of fine arts.
On November 22nd, in Manises (Spain), the assembly of AEuCC members took place, with the participation of 15 people, coming from 5 European countries (Italy, Spain, Czech Republic, Portugal, Poland), who took stock of the activities and projects and made important decisions. Continue reading →
