Why Trend and Tradition?

“Trend & Tradition is a unique cultural experiment. The organisation proposes projects that mix different approaches to culture, from the development of digital applications to initiatives that encourage knowledge dissemination on craft techniques and their incredible history. For me, Trend & Tradition is a constant stimulus to curiosity and to explore new horizons of knowledge and practice, through digital platform such as YouCraft”.
