The mission of Delhi Crafts Council is to take forward the commitment of Kamaladevi Chattopadhyay, Mahatma Gandhi, Rabindranath Tagore and other pioneers of the Freedom movement. Their dream was a central place of dignity and security for artisans and their crafts in a new India, and in India’s message to the world. DCC believes that this heritage and this mission are reinforced by national and international concerns over opportunities and rights for those at the margins of society, the challenge of environmental degradation, the search for green livelihoods, and the importance of reinforcing social, cultural and political identity in an era of such rapid globalization.
