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.

Happy New Year, Alliance members!

The Alliance for Artisan Enterprise has many exciting initiatives planned for 2016! Thank you for your dedication to artisan enterprise around the world and your participation in the Alliance network. We understand that many burdens face our members every day. To allow artisan enterprises of all sizes, types, and budgets to join our community, the Alliance has updated our member fee structure. Please review our (new!) membership brochure here for details about benefits, responsibilities, and revised fees. 

We sincerely appreciate your continued support of the Alliance and value your membership. To recognize these changes, all current members will receive 3 years of Alliance membership cost-free (beginning the date of your last renewal).

We hope these updates will allow the Alliance community to grow and flourish! Please share our brochure with any artisan organizations interested in membership; the Alliance reviews new member applications on our website on a quarterly basis.
