Colombia Bogotá, Bogota, Colombia
Number of people taking this action: 50-250
The main social problem that this project is working on is the extinction of traditional handicraft practices of indigenous peoples, due to its informality in the domestic economy and poor remuneration. The alliance with artisan workshops has allowed harmonizing the techniques of traditional craftsmanship with contemporary artistic elements, creating neo-artisan products that establish the standard of sustainable quality and innovation within the design industry. This is a social project whose mission is to strengthen the economy, promote the development of artisanal communities of the Andres, through the appreciation of local crafts and industry, which could grow and contribute significantly in the GDP. Through this project has been generated: - Enconimics goods; new jobs, monetary income to the working class and crafts.- Creative goods; craftsmanship and quality design.- Social goods; artisan integration, experimentation and use of traditional crafts.- Creative services; culture, research and development. Creating cultural heritage and forging a creative future for others. The aim is to integrate the artisans into a market where they will have a greater margin of mobility around the dissemination of their work, socialization of their own cultural heritage and gain from that work. It is estimated that one in ten jobs in the city depends on the Orange Economy industries, generating nine out of 100 pesos of income.
