Event Description : Asia Bazaar 2014.

Dastkar, in partnership with Delhi Tourism, presents the second edition of Asia Bazaar! Craftspeople and crafts organizations from Pakistan, Nepal, Afghanistan, Maldives, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan,Uzbekistan and India come together with their Indian counterparts to share and showcase talents, techniques and products. The common strands of centuries-old cultural and craft heritage come together at the Dastkar ASIA BAZAAR in a meeting and celebration of skill sets, traditions and people.

A common cultural heritage unites the countries of the South Asian region. In 2013, Dastkar decided to bring together the crafts and craftspeople of India with their counterparts from 5 neighboring SAARC Nations: Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Bhutan and Afghanistan. The event was not only a success for the participants, but also great opportunity for visiting delegates, customers & participants from across the borders, to learn about each others’ cultures & traditions.

The bazaar acts as a thread of communication between craftspeople, states, countries, traditions, skills,and cultures. It becomes a platform where artisans can learn and understand the variations of their skills being practiced in other countries- like 
Phulkari of Punjab and Pakistan, 
Beadwork of Gujarat, Afghanistan or Saudi Arabia.
It also gives artisans an avenue to study fashion trends from across borders and what they need to keep in mind while trading their products with other countries. At the same time, the Bazaar also creates a bridge where they can interact and expand their ties with neighboring countries beyond business.

Besides creating trading ties, the Asia Bazaar gives an opportunity to many small-town artisans to present their skills which are at present languishing due to non availability of market or mis-match with the demands of the contemporary, urban market. Such bazaars / exhibitions give them a chance to interact directly with urban customers and gauge market feedback about their products and see the relevance of their craftsmanship in the urban market. The Bazaar is also a window to traditional crafts & indigenous cultures from different countries for customers. It is this awareness and understanding that gives support to small producers & artisans and encourages them to expand their business & disseminate their skills to the next generations.

Dastkar’s Asia Bazaar 2014, will feature craftspeople and crafts organizations from Pakistan, Nepal, Afghanistan, Maldives, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and their Indian counterparts to share and showcase talents, techniques and products.
