“Our art is hardly seen in the northeast, the Bazaars allow us to share our heritage. I am able to sell my art and the art of 2 different coops that support over 40 Wixarika-Huichol families who don't have a market in Mexico. There are only a few events that significantly have a positive impact in our lives, we deeply thank Cultural Survival for this opportunity.”
Cilau Valadez - Wixarika-Huichol yarn painter from Mexico
"Participating in the CS Bazaars has helped us continue to generate our art, culture, and the knowledge of our ancestors. The benefits of the bazaars have gone directly to the artisans that auto-generates their own economy, clothing, and nourishment."
Felicia Huarsaya Villasante - Aymara weaver from Peru
"Selling my art at the Cultural Survival Bazaars has been both positive and profitable for my family here and in Zimbabwe. It connects me to a larger market of art buyers. The Bazaars have played an emotionally uplifting role in my life. You need your mind to be free. When I go there, my mind is always free."
Bernard Domingo - Shona wire artisan from Zimbabwe
