Artisan Workspaces are a new concept that we created that provides a multi-purpose space for impact, innovation and entrepreneurship. Our first Artisan Workspace will be launched in Gulu, Uganda in 2020.

The workspace features a creative design studio, innovative media lab, vocational business programs, wellness studio and co-working space. The fully designed Artisan Gulu Workspace includes the community’s and the Artisan’s invaluable input in the entire construction of the workspace and programs.

Within the first year the Artisan Workspace can provide over 100 job opportunities in Gulu.

Thus far, we have supported ArtisanApparel-Uganda in developing six international partnerships (one in Kampala, Uganda, three in South Carolina, one in Pennsylvania, and one in Canada). We plan to expand partnerships and production when the Artisan Gulu Workspace opens. We are committed to creating partnerships that promote fair wages, ethical working conditions and full collaboration with the artisans.
