Tanzania arts and crafts identification project (TACIP)

Background

Art and Craft is a way of life – it is the way people use their talent to express their creativity. To most of us, it is fascinating beyond belief when we come across a unique work of art. In Tanzania, artisans and craftsmen are all over the place, scattered across different regions.

For many years, this industry has been undervalued, underappreciated and generally taken for granted by the public. It has been taken to be a form of activity that only villagers and illiterate people do to seek their daily bread.

However, we believe it is more than that – Art is Life; Art gives us an identity which the whole world can describe us to other people. With over 20 years of experience, our consultants vowed to make a change in this forgotten industry before it completely perishes to the point of no-return.
