Launched in 2007, the Lindblad Expeditions Artisan Fund empowers artisan communities by offering training programs, supplying workspaces and equipment, issuing grants for local projects, and educating shipboard guests on the value of buying handmade goods. “Over the past 18 years, it has become a really robust program that enables us to make a significant impact and help artisans worldwide,” says Stacy Rivett, Director of Artisan Development for Lindblad Expeditions. In this video, Rivett shares more about this unique program, the communities and artisans we support, and how our travelers are helping make a difference in the areas we visit.
