For more information about EACD:

European Artistic Crafts Days (EACD) were created in 2002 upon the request of the French government to derive value from the nation’s enormous intangible assets as a way to highlight its living heritage. They are organised by the National Institute of Arts and Crafts (INMA) in France. Due to the success of these days in France, they now take place across Europe on the first weekend in April with 20 European countries taking part in 2018, and have become a major international event dedicated to and celebrating crafts. In 2017, events took place in Paris, Lisbon, Berlin, Amsterdam, Florence, Ireland and Geneva and many more areas. These cultural economic and tourism days brought together over 9,600 special events highlighting crafts in Europe. EACD offers the opportunity to learn more about our country and the regions in an original way that brings people together through the prism of the arts and crafts, sharing, exchanging, and learning through a dynamic sector from skilled craft makers in action.

The theme for 2019

Promote the imprint of the crafts as local signatures,
Promote contemporary know-how, inherited from yesterday, reinvented today and mastered by talented professionals
