The EU-funded Creative Mediterranean programme signed an agreement with the Chamber of Handicraft of Batna in Algeria for the opening of centre of jewellery art in the second half of 2017.

The centre will be converted by the Chamber of Handicraft of Batna, with a financial contribution from Creative Mediterranean for jewellery production material. The premises will offer different working areas.

Training, conference and lectures, exhibition rooms will be available, as well as technical spaces such as drawing and foundry rooms will be offered to the jewellery craftsmen of the region.

The centre will act like a creative hub, offering craftsmen the possibility to share equipment and knowledge, work together to develop new creative products, and benefit from training, in line with Creative Mediterranean methodology.

The Creative Mediterranean project (Development of Clusters in Cultural and Creative Industries in the Southern Mediterranean) is implemented in the framework of the Private sector Development in the Southern Mediterranean Programme, and aims to foster entrepreneurial co-operation in the cultural and creative industry notably through the promotion of promising pilot initiatives demonstrating contribution to inclusive growth.
