The Center for Innovation in Traditional Industries was established in 2017 to compile and utilize the academic resources on traditional industries cultivated by Kyoto Seika University. Located in one of the world’s leading sites of craft production, the Kyoto-based center aims to build new partnerships in handcrafts across national and regional borders through research, education and public engagement.
Drawing on the resources of the university’s five academic departments (art, design, humanities, manga and popular culture), the center conducts a wide range of projects, lectures, research, events, and outreach programs related to traditional industries with the aim of learning from history to give back to the future.
