Bangladesh has seen its socio-economic and cultural life determined by its deltaic landscape created by the major rivers and their innumerable tributaries. It has also influenced its arts and crafts throughout time. Folk art and crafts reflect traditional/native art forms of diverse communities. The history of arts and crafts of Bangladesh is centuries old though it is fading away for the lack of preservation, proper exposure and our negligence towards it. Folk arts and crafts had aristocratic patronage and a more sophisticated level of skills which craftsmen or artists inherited traditionally from generation to generation. But its identity has been lacking significantly in the past few years due to its less economic return whereas the people associated with it are mostly from the rural parts of our country. The proposal of this project arises from the need of above mentioned circumstances. This project intends to create an environment where these arts and crafts of centuries old are well-preserved and reflect the tradition of our country and encouragement towards the people who has lost their way into it.
