"Conference Arts & Crafts and Design - Dialogues and Prospect"

- International Conference Arts & Crafts and Design - Dialogues and Prospects - April 03-04-05 2024 | Saint-Etienne & Lyon


The European project MOSAIC, led in France by the Société d'Enseignement Professionnelle du Rhône (SEPR) and the Université Jean Monnet de Saint-Etienne (UJM) and involving 7 countries and 15 partners, is the initiative behind the Dialogues & Prospectsconference, with the support of the ECLLA laboratory and the 3LA doctoral school.
Within these institutions, discussions are taking place on art and design, with a particular focus on the issues of sustainable transition, economic and social development, the funding of research and development, and the transmission of know-how. While the first phase of the MOSAIC project mapped out the needs and difficulties encountered by the arts and crafts sector, we now feel it would be worthwhile to explore these unique issues in greater depth.

Associating craft and design might seem obvious. However, in the common imagination, they often appear as two different, even alien, fields. One is linked to an almost'outdated' tradition (Dumas, 2009 ; Jourdain, 2014; ), to a nostalgia for a job well done, while the other is rooted in the contemporary world - the vocabulary being one of its hallmarks -and which, from space to service, from cuisine to sound, knows almost no boundaries.
