Folk Art Body to be based in Kunming

By in News on

This past weekend, artists from China, Taiwan, the US, Canada, Japan and elsewhere adopted a constitution for the newly formed International Folk Arts and Craft Union (which is operating under the questionable acronym IFACU), according to a China Daily report

The stated mission of IFACU is to organize and promote cooperation among the world's artists to promote and preserve folk arts and crafts. The organization will be based in Kunming, ostensibly because of the ethnic diversity in Yunnan and the variety of folk art and crafts found throughout the province.

The first IFACU general assembly is scheduled to take place in Kunming in 2008.
