I am helping to organize an art festival designed to benefit a group
of refugees from Burma living in Austin. They're from a tribe that
has a strong tradition of weaving, and they make beautiful handbags
and related items.
Anyway, part of the festival is gathering up other things sold by
fair trade/charity type groups. We've lined up some paper bead
jewelry made by women in Uganda, and possibly another group in
Central America that helps kids leave gangs.
Does anyone know of a fair trade arts/craft type of group that might
want to participate in this? I know of 10,000 Villages, but they're
too big and incorporated to join in on our festival.
If you have any ideas for me, PLEASE EMAIL ME OFF-LIST!!! I don't
want to clog up this list with unrelated posts.
