Yesterday I attended the event "Craft for Change" at the Textile Museum. Weavers from Tonga and Peru demonstrated their techniques and answered questions, followed by a panel discussion with returned Peace Corps volunteers and international development professionals about the role of textiles in craft and artisan business development. This is part of the 2011 Smithsonian Folklife Festival program The Peace Corps: Fifty Years of Promoting World Peace and Friendship.
