Empowering Women: Artisan Cooperatives That Transform Communities
From Africa to Asia to the Americas, female artisans are forming grassroots cooperatives to reach new markets, raise living standards, and transform lives by creating and selling traditional folk art.
"Empowering Women" explores the work of ten such enterprises in ten countries by providing an intimate look at the compelling personal stories of these women and the exquisite traditional art works that they create.
Discover how these women work together to create folk art to provide income for their families, preserve their cultural heritage, and improve education.
This exhibition has been organized by the Museum of International Folk Art, Santa Fe, New Mexico.
