Review for International Folk Art Alliance, Santa Fe, NM, USA
I am so dedicated and supportive of the Santa Fe International Folk Art Market and Alliance for many reasons. The organization has a well defined mission to assist emerging third world artisans in a dynamic and multi-faceted way. When I became involved about six years ago the market just was evolving from a start-up event to a major market in Santa Fe. Since that time the evolution for the artist participants has grown to include marketing classes and other education and now even online marketing in the form of an international online store. The market's mission is to help not only the artists, but their towns and villages as well, by promoting this idea of contribution to the well being of not only folk art, but third world economies. The continued expansion of ideas and outlets for the market mission of helping the artists and the third world is so impressive. Supporting the third world artists with sponsorships and participation in the market is a very positive, feel-good experience for me!
