Artisans Angkor, member of the World Crafts Council
In August 2012, Artisans Angkor had the great honor to become a member of the World Crafts Council (WCC) which is a non-governmental organization affiliated to UNESCO in a consultative status. This organization aims at promoting the status of crafts as an essential element of a country’s cultural and economic life. It encourages fellowship among the craftspeople in the whole world in order to make them understand the importance of maintaining inherited traditional know-how while being innovative and reaching out new markets. This philosophy is similar to the fundamental goals that Artisans Angkor is striving to achieve.
