Many LOCAL ARTISTS from Lushoto lack access to market and promotion of their works. Through our activities we give them an opportunity to use our organisation as a network for the promotion of their products & works and encourage them to be innovative and creative while improving their skills.
We also involve groups of traditional handicrafts producers (like the women pottery group from the village Malomboi) in order to add value on their handicrafts and support the conservation of these traditional skills. The sale of pottery and other things like woven baskets a.o. also helps them to get some extra income.
TUPANDE encourages the exchange between the artists and producers of local handicrafts in order to create more opportunities for market and skills-improvment.
We want to make all the great skills and abilities of the local people visible and contribute to the conservation and the promotion of traditional arts.
On this page we want to give space for Artist with who we are working together to introduce themselves, their works and their Background!
