This platform results from the implementation of one of the lines of action of the Saber Fazer Program, approved by Ministerial Resolution n.º 89/2020, of October 23nd, consisting in a tool that will reflect the work of collecting, organizing, producing and making knowledge available on craft practices, local agents and their raw materials, underlining their relevance as tangible and intangible cultural heritage.

The Saber Fazer Program contains the national strategy for traditional arts and crafts for the years 2021 - 2025 and results from the recognition of the importance that the craft production sector can play in contemporary society, creating products and services that make sense in our daily lives, with economic viability, environmental benefits and heritage value.

This Program is financed through Investment “RE-C04-i02 – Cultural Heritage” of the Recovery and Resilience Plan (PRR) and consists on the implementation of the measure “C04-i02-m03 – Implementation of the Saber Fazer Program".
