Artist Outreach for 2018 Market
SWAIA TO DO ON-SITE OUTREACH TO EIGHT COMMUNITIES
IN ARIZONA AND NEW MEXICO
Staff will Help with 2018 Indian Market Applications
and Answer Questions Regarding the Jury Process
November 28- December 6, 2017
SWAIA/Santa Fe Indian Market will provide assistance to Indian Market applicants over six days in November and December. Staff, including Chief Operations Officer Dallin Maybee (Northern Arapaho/Seneca) and Artist Services Manager Ann-erika White Bird (Sicangu Lakota), will be available to talk about how to apply for Market (either via hard copy or online), the jury process, and the end of the tenureship program in 2016.
“Our goal with this outreach program is to be accessible to artists - to help them understand the application process and address any questions or concerns they have. With the end of tenureship, the Santa Fe Indian Market is now a fully juried, fair show. Our process is transparent and we aim to help everyone put their best foot forward with their applications,” says Maybee.
