ABOUT THE SHOW
Grannies on Safari is an inspiring series created by Regina Fraser (a former airline executive) and Pat Johnson (a former arts executive). Each episode follows these best friends on their adventures around the globe and off the beaten path. This tireless twosome submerge themselves in the local culture, meeting local artists, trying local cuisine, and going places you may not think grannies would go. As Regina and Pat have made it their mission to help women across the world to become economically independent, the Grannies seek out amazing local women entrepreneurs and explore the successful microenterprises that they have created.
ABOUT THE HOSTS
Before creating and hosting Grannies on Safari, Regina was an executive with a major international airline. Regina was inspired to travel at an early age because of her father, the renowned trumpeter Rex Stewart who toured globally while playing for the Duke Ellington Orchestra. She’s also proud to have developed a cultural exchange program as part of the White House Millennium Council for the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs.
Pat Johnson has spent her life working to illuminate how art reflects culture. She has led several arts organizations including Jamaica Center for the Arts and Learning in New York City, South Dallas Cultural Center in Texas, and she was the first executive director of the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco. In addition, Pat directed the Chicago Artists International Program for 250 artists and arts administrators from 80 countries.
