With Industry City as the perfect venue, there is ample space for the broad program.

 

MISSION

In a world where children are swiping their iPhones and 3D printers are building houses, it is our mission that the art of true craftsmanship will survive, and that it will thrive. In a time of serial mass production and consumption, the beauty of handmade quality products should be revalued. The knowledge of passionate, highly skilled master craftsmen should be shared with a wide audience of all ages.

With these objectives at the forefront of our imagination, in 2013 we founded and produced an annual festival in Amsterdam, The Netherlands: the Craft in Focus Festival. It has been a huge success in The Netherlands, and in June 2017 we are excited to bring this three-day event to New York.
