UNESCO and the Fondation Culture & DiversitÃ© established in France in 2006, call for applications for grants under the â€˜Travelling to Learn Arts and Craftsâ€™ programme, which offers students in arts and crafts the opportunity to complete a four-month study tour in France. It allows students from developing countries to discover the know-how of French craftspeople.
The programme helps students to launch their professional career by enabling them to work in a professional environment; acquire new skills and cultural experiences abroad; design and create innovative objects, develop a professional network; and participate and present their work at international fairs.
The Fondation Culture & DiversitÃ© provides logistical, financial and strategic assistance to grantees.
UNESCO and theÂ Fondation Culture & DiversitÃ© share the belief that culture plays a key role in human development for the sustainability and preservation of the richness of cultural diversity.
