Alliances born our of World Pulse publications

Posted June 17, 2020 from Costa Rica

I cannot help but highlight today how a simple publication in my World Pulse blog has brought a highly significant connection in community archaeology in  Costa Rica’s Southern Caribbean.                                                   Hola Maria! 

It is wonderful to meet you! I am an artist doing a PhD at York using artistic methods to explore the silenced history of 19 slave ships that were constructed in Newfoundland. 

My partner and I have recently bought a house in Atenas, Costa Rica. We want to live there in a few years when he retires! We are both from Jamaica and we can't wait to travel to the Caribbean coast!

I am so excited about what you are doing with the slave wreck diving and involving young people! 

I saw the video and write up here...What an intriguing story. Please send more news about it!

Looking forward to hearing from you!

btw I came across the group Diving With a Purpose about 6 months ago. Are you affiliated with them?

Maria,
Thank you for sharing how your World Pulse story made a helpful connection. It is also inspiring to read your story posted in January and see how you are involving young people. On a separate, but related note, how are you? Is your community impacted by COVID-19 (hence not diving)? Would be delighted to hear any more updates about this story of World Pulse connection or your work. Thank you again for sharing this exciting news!
