Economusée Northern Europe will combine culture, craft and tourism to create an economy platform for craft artisans practicing traditional techniques in order to help the crafts survive and create new jobs.

The project, which focused on rural or remote communities, will assist with business development, showcasing indigenous crafts, job creation and training of young people. The project is based on a successful Canadian model with 20 years experience and will see them all adopt a common house style for all the Economusée’s and be part of the joint internet site.
