Beverley Butler (CCHS, Heritaga and Wellbeing cluster) has received AHRC thematic funding for £202 340 for the project "Craft China: (Re)making ethnic heritage in China's creative economy". The project also involves David Francis, Lisheng Zhang and Michael Rowlands (CCHS) as well as Chinese collaborators.

In partnership with the Chinese National Museum of Ethnology (CNME), the UCL Institute of Archaeology research team will trace the development and reception of the 'China Craft' exhibition from Nov 2018 to Oct 2020. This project focuses on how traditional ethnic-heritage crafts across China can be developed and remade in collaboration with the 'cultural creative' industries. In particular, it seeks to contribute to the wellbeing and economic sustainability of local communities, particularly in rural areas. The UCL team of researchers will function as a critical friend for the project. We regard the China Craft project as a vibrant space for remaking both ethnic-heritage, but also the practice of exhibition-making itself. The project knits together a network of individuals and institutions with diverse interests and pursuits - academic, commercial, curatorial. It therefore creates a space for encounter and communication, as well as a means of studying how the cultural creative industry, known in China as wenchuang, functions.
