Meet a Member: A Series of Fireside Chats with WARP Members 

NOTA: puede ver la historia en español abajo del inglés.

This program is a series of monthly Fireside Chats (on Zoom) with a different WARP member each month. To keep these conversations intimate, each session will be limited to 25 participants. (This month with two sessions to choose from, one in English and one in Spanish.)

Elena Laswick grew up in Tucson, AZ, on a steady diet of mariachi, beans, folklórico, and Navajo rugs, which developed her sense of belonging somewhere between Latin America and the US and is why she is passionate about textiles, indigenous rights, and cultural preservation. She resides full time in Nebaj, Guatemala where she works with Maya Ixil weavers on small-scale private label design projects in her free time (as Ixil Collective). She also liaises with artisans in different parts of Guatemala and Peru (through a business partner in Cusco), as Amano Marketplace, all while working remotely for Capital Access as a Quality Control Manager, giving out COVID Emergency Rental funding in Pennsylvania.

Ixil Collective is a collaboration with Maya Ixil weavers living in the towns of Chajul, Cotzal and Nebaj in the Quiché region of Guatemala. Ixil Collective was created to help these remote artisans earn a more substantial market share. Amano Marketplace is a platform for Latin American artisans to share their designs and stories, where you can learn more about traditional art forms and find unique, handmade items. Join us for the Fireside Chat with Elena to learn more about these projects!
