Azerbaijan will join the European Days of Artistic Crafts for the first time, Azernews reports.
The main goal of the exhibition is to promote the art and schools of carpet weaving, which are closely connected with the rich cultural heritage of Azerbaijan, the way of life and ancient traditions of its people.

The event is co-organized by Arts Council Azerbaijan and NUR Art House with the support of World Crafts Council Europe and The Creative Europe Program.
Established in 2002 upon the request of the French government, the Artistic Crafts Days have been named European Artistic Crafts Days (EACD) since 2012.

Craft studios open their doors to the public and outdoor demonstrations are held by craftspeople, training schools and museums. Around 24 countries are involved in the 2023 EACD.
