“Was, is and will be” – Ukrainian craft-dedicated films
“Was, is and will be” – are the words that best emphasise the depth of the unique Ukrainian culture, composed of folk arts and crafts as Kosiv painted ceramics, glassblowing (hutnytstvo), Reshetylivka “white on white” embroidery, egg decoration (pysankarstvo) etc.
To present widely its rich and authentic cultural heritage, Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, with the support of the “Support to Ukraine’s Reforms for Governance” (SURGe) project, developed a series of craft dedicated short films as part of the “Etnika: Ukrainian folk arts and crafts” promotional campaign.

MEPs set to approve new rules to protect EU crafts
Parliament will vote on new measures to protect geographical indications of EU crafts and industrial products.
The new scheme agreed by the Parliament and the Council in May 2023 will ensure that locally renowned crafts and industrial products such as glass, lace or natural stones will be protected within the EU and globally. The law unifies diverging national rules on registering, checking and enforcing the protection of geographical indications (GIs).
