The Masters of Folk Arts are creative artists highly acknowledged within their own communities. They have the vast knowledge of long-established folk activities and they have the power to influence those they interact with. The masters are examples to all because they preserve the values and processes of traditional artistry.
The creative houses are real folk art community centres where craftsmen of a given area can work and think together. Then they can use the acquired experience in their own workshops.
The Association of Hungarian Folk Artists initiated the organisation of the Open Workshop network in Hungary. This was done to create a permanent live connection between the folk artists, masters, and people interested in the traditional arts.
The implementation of the professional programs of the year 2016 of the Association of Hungarian Folk Artists has been supported by the Hungarian Academy of Arts.
