As our Heritage Initiative partners at the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise celebrate five years supporting the global artisan sector, they have shortened their name to the Artisan Alliance.

Since their launch by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in late 2012, the Artisan Alliance has kept the artisan at the centre of their work.

As they continue this work, they have pledged: To support the full power and potential of the artisan sector to create jobs, increase incomes, and support development that respects the uniqueness of people and place. The organization believes the new look and deeper integration under the banner of the Aspen Global Innovators Group will help them take the next big step forward. 

The Aspen Global Innovators Group

The Artisan Alliance is a core initiative of the Aspen Global Innovators Group, a policy program of the Aspen Institute. The Aspen Global Innovators Group widens access to health and prosperity for people living at the world’s margins.
