THE FRENCH INSTITUTE OF INDIA ENTERS RAJASTHAN

JASMEEN DUGAL  (click here to know more about this blogger)

Following the launch of the third edition of Bonjour India 2017-18, the Indo-French platform for innovation and creativity, at Amber Fort last November, France is now laying the foundation of its permanent presence in Jaipur. The purpose of this French Institute outside the national capital is to promote sustained people-to-people contacts between Rajasthan and France. The new office will facilitate access to opportunities France has to offer in the fields of education and culture and will house Campus France Jaipur — the French government's one-stop-shop for the mobility of Indian students to France.

 

The second highlight of his trip, Alexandre Ziegler, Ambassador of France to India, in the presence of Maria Grazia Chiuri, Creative Director, Dior proceeded to the soft launch of an innovative textile maker-space created through collaboration between The French Institute In India and Maker's Asylum. Endorsing India's legacy in textile while imagining an innovative future, the Lab will work as a platform for knowledge and skill sharing, and will promote exchange, linking local craftsmen and professionals and promote excellence in the field of art, craft and design through innovative approaches. Driven by the belief that innovation can drive social change, the Lab will focus on developing a simple, sustainable model to boost creativity and add value to the livelihoods of women artisans in particular; the Institute will also work closely with Indian and International artisan clusters, universities, start-ups and research centres to curate year-long workshops, research, residencies and conferences.

 

About the Textile Lab, Alexandre Ziegler, Ambassador of France to India,  said ''We have a strong belief that innovation should drive socio-economic changes. These changes, however, will only become a reality if this Lab can gather everyone's goodwill in developing a simple sustainable model, in boosting creativity and market opportunities. We are building a process together, so this place will be at everyone's disposal.''
