Innovation Description

Artisan Culture is a marketplace that promotes and sells artwork from PNG and connects local artists with an international customer base. Their products include handwoven baskets: plates: decorative floor mats and ceremonial dress.Many artists in PNG live and work in remote areas: leaving them few opportunities to sell their artwork outside of their own communities. Artisan Culture travels to the remote regions to purchase their uniquely designed products. They also run financial literacy workshops for the artists and help them to prepare and package their artwork for international sale. By selling their work in the online marketplace: Artisan Culture contributes to the livelihoods of these remotely located artists and craftspeople.
