Artisanship, the thread that connects the women of the Mediterranean

women artisans

Artisanship as a connecting thread between Mediterranean women, but also as an opportunity to express creativity: one joint project of two non-governmental and non-profit organizations, AMAD from Albania and NAHNOO from Lebanon brings together Albanian and Lebanese women.

Within the Network Engagement Scheme II, with the financial support of the Anna Lindh Foundation, member organizations of the Albanian and Lebanese ALF Networks produced a video featuring the women artisans and their experiences, more similar than different.

This initiative simultaneously served as a way to convey the art, culture, values ​​of the tradition that in addition to the features of national identity, have elements that unite us in human values. Artisans of both countries see the handiwork as a source of income, but also as an activity through which find inner peace, especially for women who are of retirement age.

The video was released on International Women's Day, March 8th , to promote and celebrate the values ​​of artisan women, the protagonists of the said video.
