Cascading Innovation to the Craft, Artisan and Creative Sectors
What we do
CASCADE stands for Craft and Artisan Skills for Co-operative And Digital Enterprise and Innovation Gains, and has been co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union.
The current Covid-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on creative, craft and artisan producers as they often rely on live events, craft fairs or local markets for sales; our project will foster innovation to help this sector build resilience.
- Enable micro entrepreneurs to support the growth of their businesses.
- Develop innovations in manufacture design and business models
- Enable micro entrepreneurs in the creative, craft and artisan sectors to share the intangible cultural heritage they carry with their wider communities.
Recent & Upcoming Events
The CASCADE research project is looking for people who will be able to take part in workshops, interviews and join an online Facebook community of practice (within a closed group), to explore how you build, manage and run your business. Our workshops aim to help you: gain knowledge and skills to support business growth, develop innovations in manufacture, design, and business model, and enable the sharing of cultural heritage.
