The Project

About The Project


The European Circular Museum’s idea is rooted in the current, often critical situation of small scale independent arts and crafts designers and small enterprises engaged in circular lifestyle and environment protection, confronted with the overwhelming presence of the low price products of large international producers. Our project aims to support them by creating an interactive platform and relevant activities to help them communicate, share knowledge and improve their skills within a European community of individual designers and artists. EU COM also offers innovative digital tools for being present on the web by engaging donators and purchasers through visual storytelling.


The European Circular Online Museum aims to create a European community for individual and small-scale upcycling artists and designers who are engaged in promoting circular lifestyle, environment protection and social involvement and who need support for improving their visibility and their social and entrepreneurial skills. The Circular Online Museum is a web based platform including virtual spaces for learning, good practice sharing, exchanging materials and methods, virtual exhibitions offering a higher visibility for the artists and their work and a guide for good practices. 


Online Visibility

Empowering small scale designers and artists, particularly women and young people or socially and economically disadvantaged individuals, by providing them social and entrepreneurial skills and new communication tools to engage clientele.
