Review for International Folk Art Alliance, Santa Fe, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with the Mentor to Market training program since the beginning and attending the Market in Santa Fe since the first one. I am consistently surprised and delighted by the Market, the impact on artists, the opportunities to find amazing folk art, and the dedication and capabilities of the staff. It is an amazing operation and nonprofit. And as it continues to focus on sustainability for the artists, the global impact will be a game changer.

Review for International Folk Art Alliance, Santa Fe, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Santa Fe Folk Art Market is an amazing success and story. I have attended each year since it started and have been working with the Mentir to Market Training programs for artists for the last 4 years, bringing in executives from all over the US to help the artists. Everyone who comes, including Ambassador at Large for the State Depart,met for global Women's Issues, Melanne Veveer, have been so impressed with the quality of the handcrafts and art, the scale of activities, the impact on the artists, the impact on the community, the dedication of the volunteers and the exceptional yet small staff that puts it all together. It has to be seen to be understood....it is a market, a training week, an economic development platform, a dedication to folk artists and a really fun time. This nonprofit deserves five stars and the award.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

It can't be replicated. We hope tommake it a week long focus on the handcrafts and artisans and the impact on sustainability, economic development and opportunities for women.
