The city of Kanazawa was appointed as a UNESCO City of Crafts and Folk Art on June 8th 2009. In order to help promote Kanazawa craftwork businesses in an expanding market, create a network and facilitate the transmission of information, the municipal government of Kanazawa established this agency. Our aim is to innovate craftwork business in Kanazawa by trying to create inspirational and networking opportunities for anyone involved in craft related businesses. We invite all craft artists, designers, buyers and companies with integrity and enthusiasm for their own creative business to join in. We organize lecture events and exhibitions which can become the first step towards innovation. We support new creation, networking and problem-solving of motivated craftspeople in Kanazawa, and we provide a gallery space and lecture room for them.
