About the Road Scholar World Bazaar:
Not-for-profit Road Scholar is the world’s largest and most innovative creator of experiential learning opportunities for adults — opportunities that change lives.
At Road Scholar we consider lifelong learning to be a vital part of overall wellbeing. We believe in living life to the fullest at every age — by experiencing the world, and not just looking at it. We achieve this by meeting new people, touching history where it happened and delving deeply into the cultures and landscapes we explore.
An important part of every history and culture that we learn about is recorded in the arts, crafts and traditions of its people. While travel is limited now, we have created a way for you to continue your discovery of the cultural creations found in the places we explore on Road Scholar learning adventures through our new World Bazaar.
To bring this bazaar to fruition, we are collaborating with NOVICA. Founded in 1999, NOVICA works directly with artisans in Asia, Africa and Latin America to create a virtual marketplace.
When you purchase from the World Bazaar you not only support Road Scholar’s mission to inspire adults to learn, discover and travel, but you also help to provide vital income to artisans and to preserve global artistic traditions for generations to come.
