Social Impact Project for Partnership Development for International Market Entry
Project Description and Impact
We're a social business focusing on luxury craftsmanship and showcasing the skills and traditions of craftspeople. Founded in 2013, we work with over 100 artisans from women’s cooperatives, indigenous tribes and refugee groups, across six states of Malaysia.
By combining traditional artisanal skills with modern, contemporary design, we celebrate Malaysia’s varied heritage art forms and unique cultural narratives while advocating conscious consumption, preserving heritage skills and culture, and engaging in ethical partnerships.
We're looking for an Experteer to support our partnership development efforts and connect us to an international audience.
By participating in the MovingWorlds Institute, you will first learn social impact frameworks and human-centered design before putting your existing skills and new knowledge to action.In addition, this organization will expose you to new things, like:
- Sustainability in the fashion industry
- Traditions, culture, and art of Malaysian indigenous tribes, refugees and village communities
- experience the inner workings of running a social enterprise
We'll provide you with an AirBnB room within walking distance of our studio.
You will be immersed in understanding how our products are made by Malaysian artisans and Refugee artisans living in Malaysia. Opportunities to meet with artisans, understand their culture and challenges abound!
This project accepts virtual experteers.
