HEART & crafts was created to promote the work of Master Artisans in France and abroad –notably in Japan–through prestigious events. Our mission is:
- To contribute to the prestige of France and the promotion of French artistic crafts abroad
- To foster a French-Japanese dialogue on the common issues facing the preservation of know-hows and the future of the artistic craft sector
- To build public awareness about these know-hows, show their high skill level, but also the human aspect, the perfect relationship between mind and artistry
- To foster cultural exchanges between French and Japanese artistic craftsmen and women.
Above all, HEART & crafts values creative integrity, commitment to teaching, learning and appreciation for art and artists.
