British Council’s Crafting Futures programme in India brought together Indian and UK partners to collaborate on projects which explore new futures for crafts. Since 2019, Crafting Futures has supported 9 groundbreaking collaborations across the two nation’s industry and academia to explore different possible directions for artisan economies.

In 2022/ 23 British Council commissioned the Crafting Connections – a series of consultations with the stakeholders across the value chain of craft in collaboration with Fashion Revolution, India to bring light the connection between crafts, climate crisis and the potential to inspire a climate positive fashion and textile industry. The resulting stakeholder insight report “Craft in the Age of Climate Crisis Climate Resilience through Craft: A path to Sustainable Fashion in India “ offers anecdotal evidence alongside key recommendations for the craft and fashion sector.
