Šta je projekat All Inclusive Sarajevo?

Cilj ovog projekta je da se uspostavi saradnja između dizajnera sa inovativnim idejama i vještih zanatlija koje rade u različitim preduzećima koja zapošljavaju osobe sa posebnim potrebama, kako bi sudizajnirali kolekciju dizajnerskih proizvoda. Zamisao o ovom projektu potekla je od sarajevskih dizajnera iz udruženja Kulturanti, a prihvaćena je u poznatom londonskom Centru Helen Hamlyn pri Kraljevskoj akademiji u Londonu, koji slične radionice ima širom svijeta.

Radionica All Inclusive Sarajevo biće održana od 25. do 29. maja ove godine u Sarajevu. Radionicu organizuje Udruženje Kulturanti i Centar Helen Hamlyn. Projekat finansira Britanski savjet kroz fond za finansiranje kreativnih projekata Creative Collaborations.
