Int'l artists keen to protect folk craft
Dozens of artists from 16 countries and regions are working to set up an international union to better protect folk arts and craft around the globe.
The International Folk Arts and Craft Union (IFACU) will promote cooperation among artists from all over the world to save, protect and develop folk arts and craft, said Luo Huanxin, executive chairman of IFACU's Preparatory Committee.
The organization will be headquartered in Kunming and will hold its first general assembly in 2008, Luo said.
