From December 2018 to February 2019, the Cultural Heritage Without Borders Foundation (CHwB) of BiH will collect examples of young entrepreneurs inspired by heritage.
Examples of successful businesses will be included in the unique directory “Made of BiH”, which aims to promote the work of young people from different parts of BiH in one place.
The “Made of BiH” directories will include examples of businesses that produce objects with motifs from the legacy or in the process of making use of traditional techniques or materials. Also, the directory will include examples of businesses that bring traditional items in a modern way, i.e. give it a new usable value, and similar.
In addition to the examples, the directories will also contain stories about ten businesses that inherit the basic inspiration for the products they offer. The top ten stories will talk about business development, but also their source of inspiration. These examples should serve as an inspiration to other young people in developing their potential business ideas.
Architecture, cities, monuments, motifs with costumes or carpets, traditional crafts, legends, nature monuments, traditional materials, as well as other examples from the heritage are the source of the creativity of many businesses.
If you want your business to be a part of the directory or you know about an example worth promoting, please fill out the short form on this link.
Along with the directory, examples of successful businesses will be promoted at a special event that will be organized within the project “Youth in Crafts”, as well as through the media and social networks of the Foundation.
The activities of the project “Young people in crafts” are realized by organizations BH Crafts, CHwB BiH, and Pravo Ljudski, while funding was provided by the Government of the United States of America.
