Our country is full of indigenous legacy of master artisans and craftsmen. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari, these master artisans and craftsmen have their own identity and speciality. But due to lack of opportunities and market, the younger generations of these artisans had been moving away from their legacy. The Government led by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji has been organising “Hunar Haat” in every corner of the country to preserve crafts and to promote and provide vast market opportunities to our indigenous legacy of artisans and craftsmen.
These “Hunar Haat” has been proved to be an “Empowerment Exchange” for master artisans and craftsmen of the country. About 5 lakh 50 thousand master artisans and craftsmen and other people associated with them have been provided employment and employment opportunities through “Hunar Haat” in about last 5 years.
Besides showcasing rare handmade Handicraft and Handloom items, “Bawarchikhana” at “Hunar Haat” presents traditional delicacies from across the country to visitors coming at “Hunar Haat”. The people coming at “Hunar Haat” also enjoy traditional cultural programmes and music from every corner of the country. “Hunar Haat” is based on the commitment to “Ek Bharat Shreshth Bharat” and “Unity in Diversity”. Hunar Haat is now organized on “Vocal For Local” and “Aatmanirbhar Bharat” theme.
