​MAACRAFT is an experimental initiative which could be said to be unique in Hungary. This is a design focused social workshop which employs mentally challenged people and people living with autism. Our activities are carried out in the residential home of the Miskolc Autism Foundation within the framework of the so called occupational rehabilitation therapy. The products are characterized by individual form properties and a work routine that is adjusted to our employees. The MAACRAFT program that started in 2012 aims to attract attention to the work done at the foundation and to people living with autism. In the workshop we aim for sustainability since everything, from the production of the raw material used (willow wattles) to the steps of processing, is carried out locally. Scraps and recyclable materials are also used up. Through the employment of challenged people, the project links the ideas of the designers with the knowledge of professionals. Profit is not the main objective, it is much more important to communicate a positive and forward message about challenged people living on the periphery of the society. Read Less
