REsearch and Development
Passa ao Futuro is currently seeking funding for the documentation and preservation of artisans and craftsman in all the districts of Portugal focusing on 10 materials. Each district will be uploaded as it is complete.This research will produce a final open-source database and be the ground work for the development of similar interconnected databases worldwide.
It will also allow for many more residencies to be planned as well as the support of one on one collaborations requested by designers.
This funding will allow for us to grant the designer/artisan collaboration residencies. The designers will be selected based on their proposals or by invitation from our board. You may select to fund one or more designers.
