Artists Forum to Host First Fajr Handicrafts Festival

The first edition of the Fajr International Handicrafts and Traditional Arts Festival will be held January 30-February 2, 2017, said Ali Haji Shirazi, director general for research and education in national handicrafts at Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO).
“A total of 150 works are expected to participate in the first festival” of its kind, Haji Shirazi told ISNA.
“After the festival was approved by the Supreme Council of Cultural Revolution, there was not enough time to call for submissions; therefore, the first edition may not see many international entries,” he said.
However, the festival will convene a committee and set up a headquarters to run its affairs and artisans from across the world will be invited for the next editions of the event, he said.
“We’ve requested provincial departments to introduce local artists and their works for the upcoming edition. A selection of the submitted handicrafts will be featured and the works will be judged by both the jury and the people in two separate sections.
The selected works will be given certificates. The festival is also planning to support and consider granting facilities to artisans whose works are chosen.
The festival will be held at the Iranian Artists Forum located at Iranshahr Street in Tehran.
