The Working Traveller - Part 1

We've just put our latest podcast up.


Part 1
In this presentation the panel consider what it means to be a working traveller, talk about cultural intervention, trade, and the benefits and pitfals of craft preservation and marketing.

Join Bappaditya Biswas (weaver and entrepreneur), Stephen Huyler (anthropologist, photographer, and writer), Linda Cortright, (journalist and magazine publisher), Charllotte Kwon (owner of Maiwa and documentary filmmaker), and Sheila Paine (explorer and author) as they present a variety of approaches to travel, exploration, culture and craft.

" … the people were poor - and when people are poor they make things for themselves; once they’ve got money they buy them."

- Sheila Paine
