About 

The World Crafts Council (WCC AISBL) is a non-profit, non-governmental organisation that was founded in 1964 to promote fellowship, foster economic development through income generating craft related activities, organise exchange programs, workshops, conferences, seminars, and exhibitions—and in general, to offer encouragement, help, and advice to the craftspersons of the world. The organisation is now formally registered in Belgium as an international organisation or AISBL. AISBL is the French abbreviation for an international association without lucrative purpose.
