Join us Thursday, June 10th at Kaleidoscope Gallery with live funky, soulful tunes by Seulove (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Seulove/248399000037?ref=ts) to raise funds for Ruraq Maki!

Ruraq Maki is dedicated to supporting impoverished communities generate income through education and the sale of indigenous arts and crafts. Ruraq Maki currently operates two projects in the small Andean city of Ayacucho, Peru. These projects are the Yanamilla Prison Project, serving incarcerated women imprisoned for drug crimes, and a collaboration with Niños en la Esquina, serving at risk youth. All our educational projects and materials are offered to the community for no cost. Learn more about Ruraq Maki and our projects at our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Ruraq-Maki-Hands-that-Create/108007119223818

Beautiful, handmade items will be on sale, including hand woven and embroidered bags, our popular hand embroidered tees, and hand knit scarves and hats, all made by incarcerated women in Peru. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of these products go back to supporting the Yanamilla Prison Project. We buy all our products at a fair price and strive for cultural preservation, artistic expression, sustainability, and the fair distribution of work. Visit our Facebook page to see products that will be for sale.

Cover $5-$10 at the door, no one turned away for lack of funds. Beer and wine will be available for purchase.
