Knowledge ni Chuski

Date:20th-21st September, 2014
Time: 10:00 am to 12:30 pm
Venue: Hotel Royal Inn, Near Girnar Cinema, Rajkot

With aim to cultivate culture of knowledge and experience sharing among industrialists and professionals SVUM have taken new initiative by introducing series of seminar, talks and other informative sessions named "Knowledge ni Chuski ".

It is observed that most of MSME units are 'One Man Show'. All decisions are taken by single person. In most of case the person is technically very sound, but his financial knowledge is very much limited. That’s why many wrong practices and myths are being observed in industrialists especially in Rajkot. Under initiative of "Knowledge ni Chuski" Black Rock Mutual Fund, Pune, and Centre for Investment Education have sponsored two awareness programs. Mr. Kaushal Mandalia, Financial Trainer was key note speaker.

Supported by :MSME

Background of Kutch

The rich and diverse creative traditions of Kutch live at the intersection of cultures and communities. Once a destination by land and sea for people from Africa, the Middle East, and the Swat Valley, Kutch has a rich tradition of sea trade from Mandvi and a global connection. A river system was shared between Kutch, Sindh and Rajasthan. As a border state, Kutch is constantly absorbing cultures from the north, west, and east. Kutchi motifs can be traced to the ancient Harappan civilization, yet craft is developing and growing with the innovative and entrepreneurial drive of spirited artists.

The arid climate has pushed communities here to evolve an ingenious balance of meeting their needs by converting resources into products for daily living. While embroidery has become a craft synonymous with Kutch, other textile crafts and hard materials crafts give this land color and identity. Craft is inextricable from the numerous communities, connected by trade, agriculture and pastoralism in Kutch.

At SVUM believe that the exposure of design and design skills of the Kachchh artisans are highly evolved. There are institutions in Kutch like Kala Raksha Vidhyalaya, Khamir, Srujan, Offering design courses to Kachchh textile artisans. We have gathered Designer who have experience of working on grass root level as well as they were be able to provide exposure of forward trade linkages to artisans.

This Design Awareness Seminar got huge success many artisans come forward for design intervention and Jewelry Cluster & Copper Bell Artisan Cluster have come forward for Workshop & Project.
