We’re back in Guatemala!

We are thrilled to be back in Guatemala and will be updating you via this site during the next 10 days.  This summer we are prototyping a smaller scale initiative that will be implemented and tested by our team of 7 Parsons students in collaboration with the artisan women of Santiago Zamora.

We have arrived in Antigua and after a full day of planning tomorrow will be prepared for our first meeting with the women on Friday.

You may also notice our site revamp!  This terrific work is thanks to Parsons alumna Grace Salem.  She is still working behind the scenes while we are here ready to post, but let us know what you think of our new name, look, and site.

Stay tuned!
