The event will focus on the stories of people working together across the Philippines and with the UK to create change through weaving networks that support each other. It will culminate with the launch of a virtual exhibition that celebrates culture, communities and forests.
Woven Networks - Craft changemakers conserving forests is a one-year partnership between the Forest Foundation and the British Council through its Crafting Futures global programme. It aims to strengthen the voices of local communities by highlighting their sustainable practices and vital role as artisans, thus growing forest resources and livelihood.
Part of the programme is the Woven Networks Scoping Grants, that initiates new collaborations and supports projects that champion indigenous knowledge systems towards sustainable resource management and improved livelihood of craft communities.
