COULD YOUR ARTISAN WORKSHOP BE THE NEXT ÉCONOMUSÉE?
Following on from the successful Northern Periphery Programme projects entitled “Économusée Craft Reach” and “Économusée International”, which saw the development and launch of seven Économusée workshops in the Causeway Coast & Glens and Mid & East Antrim Borough Council areas; Causeway Coast & Glens Heritage Trust (CCGHT) wants to hear from artisans located within Northern Ireland who are keen to join the Économusée Network. Subject to funding, we aim to develop new Économusée workshops within the region, which will in turn help create socio-economic opportunities in rural communities and create new and enhanced tourism, visitor, employment and business development opportunities.
This next phase will help quality craft businesses grow and prosper in rural areas by improving their business models, launching them as focal points in the local community and as inspiration for upcoming generations.
If you are interested in being a part of this exciting craft tourism initiative, call Carole or Tierna on 028 2075 2100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the project and receive an application pack. The deadline for application submission is Friday 30th November 4:00pm.
