Welcome to U.P. Institute of Design

On the request of U.P. Govt. the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad conducted a study on the craft scenario in U.P. and submitted an exhaustive report recommending the setting up of an institution that could draw upon the strengths of the vibrant crafts industry in the state and offer innovative educational programmes that would lead to the development of the craft community in the state. The report envisaged an educational institution that could play a major role in training crafts persons and artisans, in offering design and technical assistance to crafts people working in the crafts and cottage industry sectors. It recommended that the design talent that UP needs should be developed from within its own craft traditions by harnessing local talent. NID recommended the establishment of an institute that would act as a catalyst for the development of both design and management capabilities essential to the task of revitalizing crafts in the state.
