Global Marketplace at the NMWA, May 12-13 @WomenInTheArts #hwhtw #dc @dcculture #passportdc

What better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than by supporting women artisans from all over the world at the National Museum of Women in the Arts?

“The Global Marketplace features jewelry, ceramics, personal accessories, and home decor created by women artisan groups living in emerging economies throughout the world. Exhibitors representing the craftswomen will also discuss the arts as a powerful vehicle of economic development.

“Celebrating its 25th anniversary, NMWA hosts its third annual Global Marketplace in conjunction with Passport DC.

“The Global Marketplace is part of NMWA’s Empowering Women through Art initiative, and proceeds from the two-day event go directly to the women artisans. Countries represented include: Cambodia, Ethiopia, Laos, Mexico, Peru, Swaziland, Turkey, Vietnam among others.”
