NOW has pretty much winded down, but I'm still trying to go through all the information I got (and gave) at the workshops. It also seems that cool events to go to are taking up all of my time because right now I'm trying to get back in the swing of things in time to go to this event in NYC on Tuesday night:
TWM's SPOTLIGHT ON ZIMBABWE: Crisis, Cuisine & Crafts
Tuesday, June 23, 2009 6:30 - 9:00 pm
Learn about the culture and journey of this country in crisis - its past history, its current situation and hopes for the future. Enjoy traditional Southern African snacks over cocktails in the gorgeous Xai Xai South African Wine Bar as you listen to a variety of speakers, and purchase authentic crafts from Zimbabwean women all while connecting with TWM friends old and new.
LOCATION: Xai Xai South African Wine Bar 365 West 51st Street
COST: $35 in advance; $40 at the door
Cash bar; appetizers and ambiance included (NOTE: A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to Eco Africa Social Ventures to help women in crisis there continue to support themselves.)
