Global Marketplace

Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the National Museum of Women in the Arts hosts its third annual Global Marketplace in conjunction with Passport DC.

The Global Marketplace features jewelry, ceramics, personal accessories, and home decor created by women artisan groups living in emerging economies throughout the world. Exhibitors representing the craftswomen and invited speakers discuss the arts as a powerful vehicle of economic development. 

The Global Marketplace is part of NMWA’s Empowering Women through Art initiative, and proceeds from the two-day event go directly to the women artisans. Countries represented include: Cambodia, Ethiopia, Laos, Mexico, Peru, Swaziland, Turkey, and Vietnam among others.
