Cultural Survival Bazaar
December 16 - December 18, 2011
The Cultural Survival Bazaar is a Festival of Native Arts and Culture from Around the World. We feature Native artisans, performers, and handmade products benefiting the livelihoods of artisans, fair trade, and Cultural Survival's nonprofit work throughout the world.
Cultural Survival offers several free admission events this holiday season. Each event provides you with direct access to thousands of items, handmade by Native artisans from around the world. These items include art, jewelry, clothing, crafts, decor, tribal rugs, and much more. Every item has a deeper story from the projects it supports, the artisans who made them, and the traditional knowledge that it represents. Proceeds support Native artisans, fair trade, and Cultural Survival’s work in partnership with Native communities around the world.
The Cultural Survival Bazaars also offer you an added incentive to make a difference with your shopping this holiday season. You can enjoy a festive atmosphere full of artisans, fair traders, craft making demonstrations, Native American storytelling, film screenings, guest talks, and live music performances by Native performers including Quichua band Yarina from Ecuador, Nipmuck Native flute artisan and performer Hawk Henries, the Simba Maasai Outreach Organization, and special guest artisans from all over the world.
The bazaars will be every weekend from Friday November 25th to Sunday December 18th at four different locations (many offering free parking). The bazaars offer the opportunity not only to purchase a gift for someone, but a chance to spend time with them enjoying a worldly marketplace and shopping that makes a difference for Native artisans and their communities. This year we are offering gift cards available through our website, to help you share this experience with others.
