Cultural Survival Bazaar

A Festival of Indigenous Arts and Culture

Cultural Survival Bazaar

 

Welcome to the Cultural Survival Bazaar!

Welcome to the Cultural Survival Bazaar site, we are currently active as an online directory to connect our community of loyal customers, Indigenous artists and fair trade vendors. Want a look at where artists are located? Here’s a map showing all the Bazaar participants in our 2020 virtual bazaars! Historically, the Cultural Survival Bazaars are a series of cultural festivals that provide Indigenous artists, cooperatives, and their representatives from around the world the chance to sell their work directly to the U.S. public. Covid has been a stumbling block for us all, as we maneuver new ways of connecting. In 2020, we welcomed vendors representing over 1551 artists from over 21 cultures. Their work spans various styles and forms, including handwoven textiles, natural fiber bags, kitchenware, jewelry, paintings, scarves, clothing, woodwork, and more! Indigenous art is important to celebrate and sustain. We look forward to this directory growing in 2021 as we amplify the voices of Indigenous Artists, and encourage customers to shop directly from our vendors with their sites listed in this directory.

As we embark on a second year of this global pandemic, we have decided to postpone all in-person Bazaars in 2021 since COVID-19 is still spiking in some areas of the world and travel restrictions into the U.S. continue to fluctuate. Our team at large has been responding to COVID-19 in a variety of ways.

This year, in place of marketing Indigenous-made items for sale, we are amplifying Indigenous artists’ voices, through the regular production of artist spotlight articles (click here for the new CSQ spotlight on Eva Vasquez Clemente), and our newest venture, podcast episodes, Hecho A Mano! Our pilot artist podcast series will be in Spanish only, but stay tuned for future podcast series that will be available in other languages Read more. 

A medida que entramos en un segundo año con una pandemia global, hemos decidido posponer a futuro cercano todos los Bazares presenciales, ya que el COVID-19 todavía está aumentando en algunas áreas y las restricciones de viaje a los Estados Unidos continúan vigentes. Nuestro equipo en general ha estado respondiendo al COVID-19 a través de diversas formas.

El programa del Bazar es una tradición desde hace mucho en Cultural Survival y es  parte esencial de nuestra comunidad. Este año, en lugar de comercializar artículos hechos por Indígenas, estamos amplificando las voces de los artistas Indígenas, incluyendo la producción de artículos (haga clic aquí para ver el espacio en la revista CSQ sobre Eva Vasquez Clemente) y episodios de podcast (¡en español!) Hecho A Mano. Estamos brindando además soporte interno para los proveedores.

Covid-19 threatens the livelihood of Indigenous artists who rely on sales for fundamental necessities. The wide array of items is astounding! Let’s think of these artists first when we need to make a purchase.
