Alliance for Artisan Enterprise

The mission of the Alliance is to support the power and potential of the artisan sector to create jobs, increase incomes, enhance cultural heritage and promote development that respects the uniqueness of people and place.  The Alliance for Artisan Enterprise was launched by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a public-private partnership with the US Department of State and the Aspen Institute. The Alliance is a collaborative effort of artisan businesses, support organizations, corporations, foundations, government agencies and individuals working to support the full potential of artisan enterprises around the world.
