Second event of the cycle "Expressions of Humanity - What kind of
world do we want to live in?"
Today in Guatemala, the majority of indigenous population faces
extreme poverty without access to basic needs and struggles to defend
their lifestyle and land rights. Especially women and children are
most at risk.
The event “Empowering women in Guatemala. Maya cultural heritage and
the art of weaving” aims to create awareness and a dialogue about
ways and opportunities for Guatemalan women to use their own resources
to work themselves out of poverty.
50% of the tickets and all sales of beautiful handcrafted fashion
items during the event will go directly to the project B’alam, for
the organization of a tailoring workshop for 50 Guatemalan weavers in
