BLOGS&CRAFTS I giovani artigiani e il web is an initiative begun in 2014 by the ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO exhibition committee that seeks to increase youth engagement in the event. In order to do so, the initiative creates opportunities for bloggers and joung traditional artisans to have mutually beneficial exchanges of content and coverage.
This project aims to exhibit traditional technical skills through contemporary communication channels.
Fondazione Ferragamo, the ideal partner for promoting artisanal crafts and Made in Italy products renews its commitment to support the IV edition of BLOGS&CRAFTS.
The winners will also be offered the opportunity to visit the private Archives of Salvatore Ferragamo.
During this edition of BLOGS&CRAFTS a select committee will choose 10 artisans under the age of 35 who will have the opportunity to exhibit their work during ARTIGIANATO E PALAZZO.
A group of bloggers in fields such as artisanal crafts, lifestyle, fashion, and tourism will be selected and they will be asked to live blog the event and write a post about their experience.
Their accommodation in Florence will be offered for one night by Starhotel.
Thanks to a collaboration with the international design event SOURCE, a special committee will select one of the 10 invited artisans to be the winner of the “SOURCE award”.
The selected artisan will then have the chance to participate in the spring 2017 edition of SOURCE.
