THE ARTISTRY OF CONNECTING
We went to Tufts yesterday to participate in their inaugural OneWorld event.
It was great fun. And we are so impressed by the students and their interest in and passion for making the world a better place. Neema (pictured above with her amazing mother who was visiting from Africa) and the rest of the entire executive committee pulled together a festive day to celebrate sustainable development. Delicious food, crafts, representatives from nonprofits, and live performances all contributed to a very rich experience. I've never seen students so happy and involved, especially with end of term exams and papers so close ....
On Sunday, we go to Princeton for their third Emerge! festival.
And we learned that some of the student organizers of the two festivals are connected and sharing this wonderful experience.
And we found a new artisan group too!
Women weavers in Morocco. We will be featuring some of their beautiful rugs at the December 7 Original Women event in our Heritage Gallery!
