Empowering Artists through Craft Revival, Design Innovation

Empowering Artists through Craft Revival, Design Innovation

Anant National University, India’s pioneering DesignX University is delighted to announce the successful culmination of ANUSHILP, a transformative project that signifies a remarkable commitment to reviving traditional crafts and empowering artisans in the Narmada district of Gujarat. This collaborative effort between Anant National University and the US-India Foundation (USIN) has emerged as a beacon of craftsmanship, innovation, and self-reliance.

The works of the artisans' residency programme were proudly exhibited during the visit of Dr. S. Jaishankar, Minister of External Affairs, Government of India, to the Anant campus. The Honorable Minister not only interacted with the artisans but also admired the products they had crafted. Dr. Jaishankar selected two remarkable artifacts, a bamboo box and a foldable applique world map, to serve as souvenirs for the delegates attending the G20 Varanasi meet. 

ANUSHILP stands as a testament to the spirit of reviving traditional craftsmanship, nurturing innovation, and fostering self-reliance among the artisans of Narmada. Anant National University's unwavering dedication to this cause continues to illuminate a brighter future where the past and present harmoniously coexist, creating timeless wonders.
