About Uttar Pradesh Institute of Design and Research

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.

Courses and Programmes @UPIDR

    The diverse craft sector of Uttar Pradesh has a multitude of design requirements. For a comprehensive development of crafts, UPID will have to engage with different stakeholders in multiple formats.


    Understanding dynamics of market demand and contextual use of design in developing an aspiring range of products has become crucial.


    In its glorious years the crafts had flourished due to patronage rather than the entrepreneurial skills of individuals and craft communities.


    Interested Organizations who want to take part in this may send proposals to Project Director.
