Founded in 1990 Konsthantverkscentrum (the Swedish Craft Centre) is the only occupational organisation for professional craftspeople in Sweden, with more than 700 members from all over the country. The aim of Konsthantverkscentrum is to highlight, develop and enhance the position of craft in contemporary culture, nationally as well as internationally. This is done by acting as a knowledge base, initiating conversations and dialogues, organising public events and exhibitions, as well as by supporting and marketing their members. Konsthantverkscentrum acts as an intermediary, promoting collaborations between members and different organisations, companies and institutions. The goal is to increase the status of craft as a field and make sure that in the long term, craftspeople can achieve an improved financial situation.
