EUROPEAN PRIZE APPLIED ARTS
In 2009, due to the lack of visibility the European Craft Sector, WCC Belgium Francophile (WCC- BF) in partnership with the City of Mons and World Crafts Council Europe organized the European Prize for Applied Arts. It was seen as a unifying and promotional event that would raise awareness of the skills and role of craftsmanship in the 21st century across the EU. This initiative, has run every 3 years since 2009. The need for and importance of this event is underpinned by the level of interest from craftspeople. In 2009, almost 600 artists from 28 European countries responded to the call for entries.
