Project objectives

Through a process of consultation and collaboration with the indigenous communities, five project objectives were outlined:

(1). To build on existing partnerships, from local community groups to national and international organisations;

(2). To engage and support local women in taking ownership of selling their crafts;

(3). To support the communities by helping them acquire the necessary skills to preserve and promote their cultural crafts and heritage;

(4). To evaluate and harness the knowledge gained through the project across the wider Community Museums Network of the Americas; and

(5). To build on the increased capacity of each community towards a broader project throughout Latin America in the future.
