Crafting Cultures
Crafts and innovation have always gone hand in hand. Nowadays a global re-evaluation of craft and craftsmanship is clearly noticeable. This is not a nostalgic return to an idealised past. It is a search to achieve a more sustainable society. Crafts can play a central role in different sciences and innovation.

Photo Exhibition
Scholars from various disciplines have dealt with crafts in their research, sometimes as main topic, sometimes accidental. This exhibition shows photographs by researchers – affiliated to LeidenGlobal partners – that relate to the theme of craftsmanship and innovation through craft.
