ANNOUNCING: THE GLOBAL SHOWCASe
The artisan sector is the second largest employer in the developing world, yet it is overlooked and under-resourced by traditional development efforts. This October, the Alliance for Artisan Enterprise and twelve extraordinary artisan entrepreneurs will take the TED stage and show the world why the artisan sector matters. October 26-27, find the Alliance in San Francisco at the Global Showcase, an immersive experience of people, place and product curated exclusively for TEDWomen - the premier women's conference in the world! Join us as we share the economic, social and cultural impact of artisan work with millions of TED followers across the globe.
It's about time.
The theme of the 2016 TEDWomen conference is "It's About Time." We agree! It's about time policymakers, investors, and influencers around the world recognize the impact of the artisan economy. Do you believe #ItsAboutTime we #ChooseArtisan? Share your messages on social media, and follow the Alliance on Facebook and Twitter as we prepare for the conference.
