The small is big: Craft in the inner city of Johannesburg
AbstractWith money, we tend to forget that a bigger amount can be nothing but a total of smaller amounts added together, and hence the craft industry is often overlooked in discourses of development. In the course of â€˜bigger pictureâ€™ discourses, the significance of the â€˜particularâ€™ tends to be overshadowed. This article seeks to illuminate the significance of craft production to inner-city regeneration, local economic development, ruralâ€“urban development, and socio-economic change by evaluating the effects of a particular craft project known as Beautiful Things, located in the inner city of Johannesburg in South Africa.
