CASCADE - Craft (and) Artisan Skills (for) Co-operative and Digital Enterprise and Innovation Gains

The key aim of the CASCADE project is to enable the 68% of micro entrepreneurs in craft and artisan sectors who earn subsistence-level incomes, to gain new knowledge and skills to support the growth of their businesses, develop innovations in manufacture, design and business model and to enable them to share the intangible cultural heritage they carry with their wider communities. This project covers digital learning for business growth, innovation and sustainable production along with inter-generational learning, careers advice for young people interested in crafts and the creation of a new network to enable craft and artisan workers to link up with new markets for their products.
