Artisan Reconnect

Artisan Reconnect

Unique Belize held an Artisan Reconnect on June 30, 2016. Approximately twenty-four (24) Artisans attended the event with discussions about the moving Unique Belize forward heading the agenda. The Artisans met for the first time with the new Unique Belize Program Officer, Mrs. Farah Guerrero, who would now spearhead the marketing efforts of the brand.

A review of the criteria for the authentication of crafts was done as a refresher and a marketing overview was provided to encourage further marketing of the brand by certified Artisans. Further discussions were also held regarding the Harvest Caye project, participation at local and international events, and certification of new crafts for inclusion in the program. Artisans were also advised to look out for the Creative Village coming in October 2016 along with other planned specialty workshops to be arranged on their behalf in the upcoming months.
