Embroidering craft and technological knowledges to interculturally enhance pedagogical and archival practices 

This research proposal is oriented towards the consolidation of cooperative scientific networks and common research agendas between researchers located in Switzerland and Colombia around digitization for craftwork; this is through experimental workshops (with researches and embroiderers) and fieldwork. The focus of these encounters will be questions about the ways in which craft knowledges and practices associated with the design of technologies can dialogue; this with the purpose of re-building and consolidating memory practices around local handicrafts in both countries, particularly craft textiles, as the calado embroidery performed in Cartago, Colombia and the hand embroidery done in areas such as St. Gallen and Appenzell, Switzerland.
