    Background:

    In 2013, Department of Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises & Textiles (MSME&T) of Government of West Bengal in association with UNESCO took an initiative of developing 10 Rural Craft Hunds (RCH) benefiting 3000 traditional artists.

    Seeing the success in 2016, the scope was expanded to 15 Rural Craft & Cultural Hubs (RCCH) benefitting additional 12000 artists. Capacity building, Direct Market Linkage and Exchange & Collaboration are 3 important steps of the methodology adopted in this initiative of promoting Village, Artist & Art.
