The tutorial sessions will be held online until September 3, said Vida Tavahodi, the director-general of handicrafts instructions and promotion at Iran’s Ministry of Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism.

“The workshops will be available to officials of world cities and villages of handicrafts [designated by WCC], as well as non-governmental institutions active in the field,” Tavahodi said.

“Seminars will be held every day from 12:00 to 14:30 BST, with each topic taking from one to three sessions,” the Iranian official said.

The development of public participation in the field of handicrafts, identification of original handicrafts, branding for world cities and villages of handicrafts, and various techniques for digitization and virtualization are among the main topics to be discussed during the webinars, Tavahodi added.

The Belgium-based World Crafts Council is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that was founded in 1964 to promote fellowship, foster economic development through income generating craft-related activities, organize exchange programs, workshops, conferences, seminars and exhibitions, and, in general, to offer encouragement, help, and advice to craftsmen and women of the world.
