Learn more about Indigenous crafting in Guyana

posted in: News 0


As part of our Indigenous crafting project in Guyana, we’re releasing today a short stop-motion video that gives a quick overview of the project aims. The focus of the project is craft associated with food, whether that is growing and catching food, harvesting and preparing food, cooking food and of course, eating food!

What can you see in the video and how do you think it’s used?

Keep tuned as we bring you updates about the project, and introduce you to some master crafters in Guyana.

Want to find out more about craft and its use in everyday Indigenous livelihoods? Head over to http://communityownedsolutions.org/ to watch some participatory videos.
