The Cultural Survival Bazaars are festivals of Native art, music, and culture. Attendees can purchase unique handmade products, meet and socialize with visiting artisans and performers. Read about our day on the Amherst Common a few years ago here, and see photos above. These Bazaars offer free entertainment which includes live world music performances and a variety of cultural presentations.
Walk around and explore the world, learning all about the crafts, how they are made, the cultures they represent, the symbolism in the art, learn about the people who made them. The Bazaars are a world marketplace where you can find handmade jewelry, clothing, décor, area rugs, pottery, sculptures, and many other traditional arts and crafts from Africa, Asia, and the Americas. The proceeds support Indigenous Artisans, fair trade companies, and Cultural Survival’s work defending Indigenous lands, languages, and cultures.
