futurprimitiv is an initiative founded in 2018 by Evey Kwong.
Evey is a design practitioner and crafts revivalist, exploring in a cultural, social and artistic approach to unfold the value for tradition and the process of making. Her artistic work and research connects with craftsmen, placemakers, and social designers evolving around the themes of craft-based technologies, self-sufficient living and the back-to-nature movement.
Her background in brand storytelling has brought her closer to the need of finding new meaning by sharing real stories with real people. What happens when a city dweller meet a rural basketmaker? What does it mean today to be close to nature and to be working manually with hands?
Combining with her research via learning crafts, she develops experimental workshop formats, to encourage new makers. Learn-Practice-Engage.
She is currently based in Berlin and travels around the world to learn and document forgotten crafts and cultures.
