Creative Nassau members Patricia Glinton Meicholas and Pam Burnside made a valuable international connection with Mexico this month in a skype call! The City of San Cristobal De Las Casas is presently making application to join the United Creative Cities Network as a City of Crafts and Folk Arts. They had reached out to Creative Nassau earlier in the year and a firm friendship was formed! A skype call was made this month to speak with members of the organization as well as representatives from the cities of Colombia, Ecuador, and the United States about Creative Nassau's programmes. More dialogue, interaction and collaboration is expected to take place!

Excited participants are shown in the photo at the conclusion of the 90 minute skype call!
