International Folk Art Alliance
October 31, 2014

I have been a volunteer and Board member for the past 8 years with the SFIFAM (now part of IFAA). Folk art traditions worldwide are threatened by
many factors, including the importation of cheap copies of the baskets, pottery or other traditional arts that they create. I am passionate about the mission of the Market because
the opportunities afforded to artists by the IFAA create a lifeline of sustainability for countless artisans and their communities…already more than one million people are
estimated to have been served by this organization. They say that thirty cultures go extinct every year and that 50% of cultural diversity will be lost in the next one or two generations.
I am proud to be a part of the IFAA’s effort to sustain folk art and cultural traditions worldwide.

The International Folk Art Market Santa Fe is truly a "miracle, not a market". The phenomenal event that takes place each year thanks to an amazing system of volunteers and staff is but one part of that miracle. What touches me and others about IFAM Santa Fe are the countless stories of lives transformed...the lives of the artists who attend, and those of their communities that they represent. It is an organization like no other on this planet and serves a sector of the developing world that had been struggling with globalization and lack of markets. Only ten years old, IFAM Santa Fe has had an enormous impact and I can only imagine the positive contributions IFAM Santa Fe will make in the next ten years.
I have been both a volunteer and board member and am a huge fan and supporter of the work of this amazing non profit.
