This month's show is a specai Father's Day edition featuring an interview with my, Dad, Tom Aageson, the co-Founder of the Global Center for Cultural Entrepreneurship. In addition to being the co-Founder of the Global Center, he is also the Executive Director of the Museum of New Mexico Foundation. Since coming to Santa Fe, he has developed New Mexico Creates, an economic development initiative that creates market links for New Mexico artists and artisans. He is also the co-Founder of the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market.
Before moving to Santa Fe, he was the Director of Aid to Artisans, an international artisan enterprise development NGO. Previous to that, he was at the Mystic Seaport Museum where he created the Mystic Maritime Gallery, which led to the opening of new markets for martime artists, and eventually spawned six for-profit gallery enterprises across the US.
