Welcome to Community, Craft and Heritage

Intach is actively involved in developing community based enterprise to benefit communities where it is executing conservation projects. Intach has complemented its efforts to conserve and promote the cultural heritage of communities living in heritage precincts by helping to develop and upgrade their craft skills and inculcate in them a pride in their heritage and confidence in their skills. It also endeavours to improve living conditions and generate opportunities for self-employment and income generation, to work with craft clusters to develop community based enterprise, to revive and promote dying skills and to assist artisan groups to find lucrative outlets for their products and provide marketing linkages and platforms. Design and development workshops, setting up of common Facility Centres, social development initiatives to help women from economically weaker and socially backward societies are all part of the activities. The showroom at Intach showcases new craft developments and provides a marketing platform to the craft clusters.

The corporate social responsibility mandate would be greatly benefitted by interventions in this particular creative area of artistic preservation.
