Weaving Connections Worldwide with WARP
About Weaving Connections Worldwide with WARP
Weave A Real Peace (WARP) is an international organization with the mission of improving the quality of life of textile artisans worldwide. WARP's Executive Director, Kelsey Wiskirchen, will share stories of connection and empowerment for women in weaving communities around the world. In Guatemala, India, Bolivia, Sardinia, Ghana, and many other countries, WARP members work to promote an appreciation of handwoven textiles, and a living wage for the weavers who make them. The program will be an inspiring look at the work done to support the future of handweavers and textile artisans in communities around the world. Kelsey will also share information about WARP resources that may be of interest to MAFA members, including WARP's artisan resource guide, emergency relief grants, and free monthly virtual programs. You can learn more about WARP at wwww.weavearealpeace.org.
