We cooperate with local authorities as well as cultural and commercial institutions. By organising exhibitions and events, we popularise Polish craft at home and abroad. Lectures and debates aim at introducing the audience to the secrets of both the traditional and modern making. We also advocate thoughtful and responsible consumption. We show craftsmanship as a perfect instance of producing objects and, at the same time, paying respect to the natural environment. We provide deep insight into the social and economic aspect of the activity of small local craft studios and workshops.
Some of our member studios offer craft workshops, including educational classes for children and adults. Our members actively participate in city consultations and local community meetings.
We cooperate, among others, with Łódź Design Festival, Zamek Cieszyn, Institute of Design in Kielce and Association „Based in Warsaw”. Nów’s actions are also supported by other non-governmental organisations, such as Serfenta (basketry weaving) or Michelangelo Foundation, an international organisation committed to the promotion of craft.
