Cluster vision:
• Nurturing, preservation and protection of folk art and cultural and historical heritage of our people, raising the awareness of the citizens, and especially of the children and the young about the importance of preserving the traditions and customs of our people, organizing the activities aimed at education and development of the personal preferences and creativity of the citizens.
Cluster mission:
• That the young people, at least a small number of them, will decide, later in life, to be engaged in crafts, in order to provide themselves a job, material existention and thus, better future, meaning that they will not be a burden to their family, city and country, as unemployed and financially unsecured;
• To attract the attention of the tourists and thus increase the touristic offer of our city, and in the long run, to attract the foreign investors who will create new jobs;
• To provide the facilities where all the craftsmen could work together, and show the process of manufacture right on the spot, what shall be a tourist attraction, like in some other cities. In its facilities, the association can organize, alone or together with other organizations, exhibitions, festivals, meetings, seminars and other forms of networking and education of its members, citizens, children and young people. In order to accomplish it, the association will cooperate with educational institutions, professional associations and other organizations and individuals in country and abroad dealing with the same or similar activities, and with the humanitarian associations as well.
