Where Americans and Peruvians Living Abroad Connect to Peru

Peruvian Artisan Fair in St. Louis Benefiting Artisans in Peru

with one comment

If you are planning to be or if you already are in St. Louis, you might want to check out a Peruvian Artisan Fair that will take place at Northminster Church on Sunday, December 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the church on 1570 Chambers Road in Dellwood.

What’s neat about it is that proceeds will be sent directly to local artisans in Peru — a very talented group of Peruvians that given unfortunate lack of funding and access to the international market they cannot demonstrate the immense business and art potential they have to the world.

This is indeed a cause very close to my heart. My grandfather (who is now in Heaven and resting with God) was one of the most renowned ceramic artisans (“retablistas“) in Peru from Ayacucho. Love ya, bulito!
