The Estonian Native Craft Department at University of Tartu Viljandi Culture Academy celebrates its 25th anniversary with an international conference, "Studying Traditional Crafts: Goals and Methods in Higher Education", dedicated to different topics that explore the role of craft studies in higher education. Higher education on traditional crafts provides a framework for discussing tradition as a dynamic cultural process and describing heritage as environmental, cultural and societal assets for the continued development of society in local, national, and global perspectives. It empowers people to make intentional decisions about their environment and material culture.

The conference will be held November 12–14, 2019 in Viljandi, Estonia. The conference invites scholars, teachers, students, and practitioners. Cultural workers such as artists, craftsmen, and designers interested in developing knowledge in native crafts and its position in today’s society will find models and inspiration at this conference.

The conference provides an opportunity for workers across this diverse range of fields to communicate with one another around the intersections of traditional crafts and higher education in theory and practice.

The deadline for registering is October 15. For more information on this conference, see Craft Conference 2019
