The page offers online audiences across Europe a single access point into the richness of crafts heritage. There were many varied activities which led to its creation, from workshops to support cultural heritage professionals to work with crafts heritage, to innovation in infrastructure, new technologies and data enrichment - all of which is recognised by the award.
Nicolas Roope, co-founder of the Lovie Awards, says, ‘CRAFTED has excelled in its category, showing fantastic prowess in digital innovation and creativity. This award is a testament to the skill, ingenuity and vision of its creators.’
Eirini Kaldeli from NTUA, project Coordinator for CRAFTED, says ‘We feel the award recognises the innovative approach to digital storytelling we took to share stories of Europe’s crafting heritage and engage new audiences with them online. The win also acknowledges and reflects the hard work and collaboration from cultural heritage institutions and project partners to make crafts heritage more accessible to our audiences.’
