The Online Encyclopedia of Crafts in the Asia Pacific Region is an initiative of the World Crafts Council – Asia Pacific. It has the following goals:

  • To preserve and to document languishing crafts before they disappear completely
  • To share information about the crafts
  • To include all the countries of the Asia Pacific Region
  • To offer support and recognition for the craftspersons
  • To inspire younger generations to follow the crafts
  • To facilitate dialogue between the countries of the region
  • To provide a platform for other projects such as travel guides and development programs

The aim is to finish this encyclopedia on an online platform by the end of 2016.
