Campaign

Creative Dignity is a movement that has brought together diverse creative producers, practitioners and professionals to energise the ecosystem that Indian artisans need in this time of COVID-19 and post-COVID-19 impact. Our focus is to provide relief, and rejuvenation of the artisans in a bid to ensure their sustained prosperity.

Relief

In the first three months,
we aim to provide immediate
assistance – cash, food & comfort
to artisans in distress reaching
the most vulnerable artisans
to provide ration kits and support
in identifying sale worthy stocks

Rehabilitation

From the 3- 12 months, we will seek to equip & prepare the artisan ecosystem for scale so that artisans can have stability in income

Rejuvenation

From 12 – 36 months, we aspire to
drive sustainability and scale in the
handicrafts industry to generate crafts
industry growth twice that
of the GDP growth

Creative Dignity is run by experienced organisations and volunteers at zero administrative cost. We have initiated an active network of 28 State hubs for relief support and unsold stock liquidation.

Help us identify those in need:
Ask artisans in your networks to call / text our

OUR VISION

India is made of makers – our cities and villages are a confluence of every skill and material – forging, weaving, sculpting the tradition and the future of the country. It is a pulsating living culture, all-pervasive across the time and place continuum.
India has approximately 200 million artisans* from master craftspersons, micro-entrepreneurs to piece rate, and job workers. They are the crafters of creativity within our culture but go unrecognized within the vast informal workforce. At this time of upheaval, we have an opportunity to re-imagine a more self-reliant, sustainable and ecologically sound future. Creative manufacturing can be the foundation of the next regenerative economy.
Our purpose is to enable vulnerable creative producers to enjoy secure and stable livelihoods and enable an ecosystem that ensures their health and wellbeing. We invite all who love the cultural creative manufacturing that we call ‘craft’ to contribute to the endeavour.
* 7 million is the official figure but guesstimates place it at nearly 200 million

Creative Dignity began as a spontaneous coming together of people moved by the plight of the artisans gravely impacted by COVID-19. It has been the volunteers from diverse fields who have been the driving force behind Creative Dignity's success. Whether it is datacollection for inventory, pricing, and cataloguing, promoting artisans' work, forging new connections with the market and enabling artisans to reach audience globally, creating visuals and content for the Karuna campaign or organising initiatives like Artisan Direct by collaborating with various online e-commerce platforms, all has been made possible by our volunteers who spend countless hours every week to make this movement a success. 
If you are someone who wants to contribute with your skills and time and do your bit to get the craft sector back on its feet, do get in touch.

Sandeep Dhopate @sandeep_dhopate has been conducting the most challenging yet satisfying collaborations with artisans, teaching them through online classes how to document their products with great lighting and background. This has enabled them to start cataloging themselves and adapt their businesses to the digital ecosystem.

Creative Dignity firmly believes that digital literacy is essential for rehabilitating the craft community and through its initiatives such as the ongoing Artisan Direct: National Edition is strengthening connections among artisans, sustainable brands and discerning consumers.

Creative Dignity and many other such volunteer movements that have emerged in response to COVID-19 are endeavouring to be a ray of hope for the Indian artisans. To combat the situation, we are facilitating artisans access to new markets. Digital literacy is crucial for sales to happen and we are helping artisans to adapt to the digital world. It was inspiring to see artisans learning how to document their handmade products with great lighting and background in one of the masterclasses we organised. This enabled them to start cataloguing themselves.

The national edition of Artisan Direct involving craftspeople from six states and two union territories is one of our ongoing attempts to help Indian artisans find newer niche markets. We have partnered with seven e-commerce platforms - Jaypore, Okhai, GoCoop, FreedomTree, Zwende, Tata CLiQ, iTokri to boost stock sales of the craftspeople involved. The campaign is supported by FLO - the Women's Wing of FICCI.
Let's make sure that this festive season, we create joy and hope for Indian artisans by conscious gifting. Our small actions and choices can go a long way in making a positive impact in the world.

Women working with Action Centre for Transformation (Act) Gurugram proudly says they have “kaagaz ke pankh”. Around 200 women from in and around Bhondsi in Gurugram are involved in crafting utility products using newspapers. Using the ingenious art of paper weaving that involves rolling, coiling quilling, weaving and papier-mâché, these women turn waste paper into eco-friendly long-lasting products. Creative Dignity is endeavouring to find new niche markets for their aesthetically pleasing and sturdy products.

Tattooing or “Godna” is an age old tradition practiced widely in India. Mithila region in Bihar is known for its distinctive styles of wall and floor paintings, namely Kachni, Bharni, Tantric, Godna and Gobhar.
In northern Bihar, women from two sub castes among the Dalit community— the Dusadh and the Chamar — mastered the art of Mithila painting. Their characteristic style of painting was distinctively different from upper caste women who were allowed to draw from religious Hindu texts.
The women of Dusadh and Chamar sub castes were not allowed to represent divinities and found inspiration from the animals, plants and birds around them. Over time, their pictorial alphabet began to include lines, waves, circles, sticks and snails and became more abstract.
If we begin to trace the history of Godna, we will find that Godna painting is derived from the Godna (tattoo) making art of Nattins (women of nomadic tribes). They used to travel from village to village making different styles of Godna on the bodies of the villagers. The economically poor women of lower castes, who could not afford jewelry, loved to get different styles of Godna drawn on their bodies by Nattins.
The credit for Dalit inclusion in Mithila paintings goes to the German anthropologist, Erika Moser, who inspired and guided Dusadh women back in the 1970s to wholeheartedly embrace the art. She advised the Paswan women to use paper as a medium. Thus the contemporary Godna painting came into existence.
Creative Dignity is endeavoring to find new niche markets for Godna artists like Shravan Kumar Paswan who is a third generation Godna artist and learnt it from his mother, the legendary Uma Devi. With their usual medium of sales – shilp bazaars and fair trade events – no longer there, they are struggling to sell their stock. We are hoping to find newer avenues for them.

Manjusha art, though dating back to seventh century, is one of the lesser known art forms from Bihar. It is a story based art form from Eastern Bihar and is practised in Bhagalpur district of Bihar. This art form, like many art forms in India, is intimately intertwined with the local folklore of Easter Bihar.
Manjusha art is associated with a festival known as Bishahari Puja, and is based on the folklore of ‘Bihula Bishahari’. Manjusha in Sanskrit means ‘box’. The word refers to the ceremonial temple-shaped boxes used by devotees to store items for Bishahari Puja. The tale associated with the Puja is of Bihula and how she saved her husband’s life.
Bihula had asked an artist to paint “Manjusha” (the temple-shaped box) showing her and her family’s tribulations. She also specifically asked the artisan to paint the flora and fauna of Anga Pradesh (Eastern Bihar) on the box. The colours – pink, green, yellow - chosen symbolically represented sacrifice, determination and happiness.
Borders are an essential feature of this painting and majorly depict the flora and fauna of the region. Only three colours – pink, yellow, green- are used for this style of painting. Currently, fabric paints are used as raw material. Initially, it started as a painting on “Kalash” (water vessels for rituals) and eventually it evolved to wall painting, painting on paper, painting on fabric and others.
We at Creative Dignity are endeavouring to find newer and niche markets for this exquisite art form from Bihar. Though lesser known, it is as vibrant and rich as the other art forms from the region.
