The Alliance for Artisan Enterprise, founded in November 2012 and hosted by the Aspen Institute, is a collaborative effort of over 70 artisan businesses, artisan support organizations, corporations, government agencies, and other partners who are working together to promote the full potential of the global artisan sector.  

The Alliance for Artisan Enterprise was created to elevate the importance of the artisan sector, support and grow artisan businesses, and share best practices in a collaborative learning community.

Explore the new look & feel of the Artisan Alliance:

As we celebrate 5 years supporting the global artisan sector, the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise is now the Artisan Alliance. Since our launch by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in late 2012, the Artisan Alliance has kept the artisan at the center of our work. Now more than ever, it is critical to stand by our mission and determine the best interventions to support and strengthen artisan businesses across the globe. 

As we continue this work, we pledge: To support the full power and potential of the artisan sector to create jobs, increase incomes, and support development that respects the uniqueness of people and place.

Thank you for joining us in this important work. It will take all of us, together, to generate meaningful change and show the world the artisan sector matters. We think our new look and deeper integration under the banner of theAspen Global Innovators Group will help us take the next big step forward.
